This is a very effective, but fun way to practice answering job interview questions.
Gunter, Texas (PRWEB) January 29, 2013
Career Confidential, a website dedicated to educating job seekers about the job search and interview process, has launched a video-based job interview question and answer training program to help job seekers learn how to answer job interview questions. Career Confidential’s Mock Interview Training is offered at no charge to all interested job seekers.
Here’s how it works: Job seekers go to the website and watch a video of Career Coach and Career Confidential CEO Peggy McKee ask a typical job interview question. Below the video, participants type in what their response would be to that question. Once the answer is submitted, participants are allowed to see McKee give an answer to the question. In the video, McKee talks about what a good answer would sound like, and coaches job seekers through the thought process of answering that question, with suggestions for what to say and how to adapt that answer to the participant’s own individual situation. Participants compare their answer to McKee’s answer and are able to refine and improve their own answer.
According to McKee, “Response to this training has been amazing. People love it. They usually tell me they had no idea their answer was that weak until they hear my answer. They tell me that this really helps them. This is a very effective, but fun way to practice answering job interview questions.”
McKee says that when job seekers practice answering interview questions ahead of time, they are more effective and stronger in the interview. They sound more confident and ultimately perform better.
“One of the most effective things that job seekers can do to prepare for job interviews is to know how they will respond to at least the most common interview questions. You just can’t go into an interview and not expect certain questions, like, ‘Tell me about yourself,’ or ‘why do you want this job?’ You can just count on being asked those things, and you better be ready to answer them,” says McKee. “If you’re not ready, it makes you look unprepared for everything.”
