One to one interview training – £120
This is a great session for anyone who is getting to the interview stage but struggling to secure a job offer. The structure includes a pre-training worksheet identifying strengths/weakness, discussion of this and best practice, 45 minutes of competency and situational based questions and then feedback and follow up tips.
If you are partaking in the training for a specific interview we ask that you share the JD so that we can tailor the questions around that. However, it doesn’t have to be concerning a specific role. We will run through this sheet at the start of the training to make sure we tailor the session to your strengths and weaknesses. Please find a quote below from someone who had this training and then went on to secure the next role they interviewed for:
“Over the last few months I have been at threat of redundancy and so I’d stepped into high gear applying for jobs. And though I had achieved success in obtaining several interviews, an offer had not materialised, much to my distress. That’s when AJR reached out, when I was really struggling, to offer one to one interview training.
With a final-round interview looming, AJR were able to set up a session at short notice with the lovely Lucy. After sharing details of the role and past feedback, she led me through an hour of intense and highly personalised tuition, all while making me feel completely at ease. She really listened to my worries and turned them into positives, greatly boosting my self-esteem.”
