Failing at job interviews is down to planning!

There are many reasons why you may fail a job interview however at Behavioural Cues we have identified the primary and fundamental reason is planning. An example being If you are a planning a long road trip to a new destination- Imagine if you fail to plan the route, the time it takes, what you need along the way and any of the problems you could encounter during the journey, it is probably more luck than judgement that you get there on time and without stress. The same is for a new job interview. 

Rapport and build trust, body language, appearance, mindset, knowledge of the business and role, the ability to articulate and answer a question concisely, inconsistencies in answers and much much more can create doubt in a future employers mind.

Let us help you unpick the process, practice your interviewing skills and prepare you best for that next interview.

Some of the topics we will cover in your one-to-one session: 

  • Research and Planning for the interview
  • Resume versus Job Description
  • Human behaviour, stress and behavioural indicators
  • The ‘Mindset Warm-up’ and rapport building
  • The types of questions you will be asked, and how to answer them using the *STAR Method (Situation, Task, Action, and Result)
  • Questions you need to ask

What makes our course different

A mock interview will be conducted whereby we assess your: responses to the questions asked, behavioural indicators displayed, engagement with the interviewer, and the genuine emotional responses during the interview. We use Layered Voice Analysis during the process to understand if your verbal responses are your genuine emotional response. i.e. do you really believe what you are saying

To date we have delivered our interviewing training and workshops to the following selection of clients:

  • Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Hong Kong
