Excel at your next job interview by attending our Essential Interview Skills Course

Excellent communication and presentation skills are very often cited as key differentiators when it comes to choosing the right person for the job.

But of course, there are other things that you need to get across in an interview situation - like how well you are suited for the job, your technical competencies, your ability to grow in the job and how well you're going to fit in with the rest of the team.

Ultimately however, it will be how well you express yourself in the interview and how well you answer the relevant questions that will decide the outcome.

And this is where Skillstudio can help you.

Learn to excel on our one-day interview skills workshop

Our one-day public workshop is ideal if you are likely to have an important job interview sometime soon.

There is a maximum of 9 attendees on the day, so you'll receive plenty of personal coaching from your trainer.

By attending this course you'll ensure that you have the best chance possible of getting the best job that you are technically qualified to perform.

You'll also:-

  • Learn techniques to help control interview nerves
  • Discover how to use your voice to convey a confident & engaging style
  • Know how to use body language to build rapport with your interviewer
  • Discover key preparation techniques to help you perform to your strengths
  • Be able to deliver convincing answers to your interview questions

Our public workshops take place throughout the year in London, Birmingham, Leeds & Glasgow. (See our calendar further down this page for workshop dates.)

And you can book your place on a workshop for just £397 + VAT (£476.40 including VAT).
