Leave Interview Anxiety in the Past with Interview Skills Training
Interviews are a necessary, and often, nerve-wracking part of a job search. Many jobseekers have a profound fear of interviews, which often stems from a fear of public speaking. But how you prepare and conduct yourself in your interview shows a prospective employer how you will conduct yourself in the position.
If you want to land a job, you must learn how to present yourself confidently and give thoughtful, practiced responses that show your passion and expertise. With help from a Rush Recruiting & HR interview coach, anyone can learn to remain calm, confident and impress a hiring manager during an interview.
Our Approach to Interview Coaching
The interview skills training process consists of the three following primary components:
- Practice – Without practice, it can be hard to perform well during an interview. As the old saying goes “practice makes perfect,” and when you feel adequately prepared, you are far less likely to become nervous and stumble over your response. Practicing out loud, multiple times, is key.
- Constructive Feedback – Practice is necessary, but without constructive feedback and criticism, it can be difficult to pinpoint your weak spots. We provide practical tips and constructive feedback so you can better understand your interview strengths and opportunities to improve. If we identify an area you need improvement in, we’ll help you address it prior to the actual interview.
- STAR Interviewing – STAR Behavioral Interviewing Techniques were designed to help individuals succeed during interviews and to allow the job seeker to share, succinctly, specific examples of how they solved problems and improved the organization. Rush Recruiting & HR is fully certified in STAR Behavioral Interviewing Techniques.
With help from our interview coaches, you can increase your confidence and ability to give high-quality responses to a wide variety of interview questions that will help you stand out from the competition.
