Brand names and technical skills will open the door, but they won’t seal the deal. How well applicants tell their story in an interview will.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
JobSearchDigest.com invites financial professionals to join two industry veterans as they delve into the mindset of the interviewer in the free private equity training video, “What to Expect in Your Interviews.” Created and conducted by David Kochanek, publisher of JobSearchDigest.com, with Brian DeChesare, Founder of Mergers & Inquisitions and of the “Breaking into Wall Street” training program, and a former investment banker, the workshop outlines what to expect in the private equity interview process, what firms are looking for, how recruiters and firms screen candidates, how to make the most of the office interview, and how to follow-up the right way.
“A polished resume, technical skills, and a strategic plan that targets specific firms and job openings won’t be enough to help applicants with weak interview skills,” said Kochanek. “JobSearchDigest.com created ‘What to Expect in Your Interviews’ to teach anyone seeking employment in the financial services industry how to stand out from other candidates during the interview process.”
The one-hour training video identifies the advanced skills needed to convert an interview into a coveted private equity job offer. It teaches candidates how to prepare for and prove themselves in interviews. Out of the hundreds or even thousands of interview questions that recruiters and hiring firms might pose, “What to Expect in Your Interviews” identifies the four crucial queries candidates must have answers for.
“Decisions are often made in the first few minutes of an interview,” continued Kochanek. “In this video, JobSearchDigest.com teach the five things that should be communicated during that critical time. It also gives candidates step-by-step instructions in how to craft a compelling story about the deals on their resumes, and advises those seeking private equity careers how to respond when asked for an opinion on a case study.”
“If a candidate blows an interview, he or she simply won’t get the job offer,” said Kochanek. “Brand names and technical skills will open the door, but they won’t seal the deal. How well applicants tell their story in an interview will.”
Concluded Kochanek, “Firms must make a profit from every potential hire. Candidates who stand out are those who’ve learned to position themselves in a way that shows they will add the most value, either by making a firm money, saving it money, or saving it time by improving a process.”
