I'm going to have an interview to be accepted in a Professional School 😟 If you wanna leave any tips, I'll appreciate it.
I have no problems talking to people. I actually have a background in HR and Staffing and I do resumes and interview coaching on the side.
Sometimes I have an issue talking about myself.
If they ask you about what weakness you have think of things that you want to improve. Don't say you don't have any because nobody is perfect.Sit up straight and don't cross your arms. Avoid using the word "um" in every sentence. I used to be bad about this. Have questions ready for them. Sometimes they ask "Do you have any questions for me" it is great if you do.
If you need to know anything else please feel free to ask me. I was just thinking off the top of my head.
Thank you for the advice :)
Most welcome :)
Btw, congratulations on your interview. I forgot to say that earlier and please keep us posted on how things went
A professional school? To be a student or teacher?
I got nervous, myself. I have never, not gotten a job, though. I am pretty good at turning things around.
Showing interest is key. People love to talk about themselves.
To be a student.
I guess that's the major thing. The exams also revolve around the new course (Like in Portuguese, there's chance the topic of the last question will be something around Culinary or Tourism), so I think showing interest in the topic would help a lot. I am very interested, but I'm sure I'll be very nervous, so we'll see how that works. I still have some weeks to get ready.´
Thank you :)
You will be exactly the kind of student they will want. You're going to ace it.:)
I could get you to hire me:]. But i do reckon i would have to go to nursing school first...
I would go out of my mind.
I'm hoping that helps.
Messed up several interviews down the years.I have become a rambling idiot and a silent mute with a blank mind!
Annoying thing is I worked as a teacher and was perfectly happy in front of a class.But my dreadful interview problems meant my career never advanced as it should.
I guess being put on the spot doesn't help. It really sucks.
Just imagine the person is in their underwear and you won't feel nervous..
That stopped working for me... Why?
Because you kept picturing them in Scooby Doo onesies?
Lol. Thank you but I think I'll start laughing. I don't think that's good xD
It would be better than crying
Pretty good, I've never had trouble getting a job.
WTG Sophia! Good luck with it. I do alright in interviews...I'm definitely a bit on the nervous side when it comes to being put on the spot but nerves aren't always a bad thing as long as you somewhat have control over them. Just like with anything else it takes lots of practice/preparation. Try to guess what they may ask you. Keep it on topic and focus on what you can bring to them/why you should be there.
I know one old student of that school, so I'm gonna ask him what did he said. Maybe that helps.
Awkward and I say the wrong things.
The only tip I can think of is to go into the interview Not Needing The Job. Life seems to work out smoothly when one is NOT needy...ha.
I used to tell ppl "Remember, you are also interviewing them! But, really...who are we kidding here?
Lol, it's not for a job (I'm going there to be a student), but thank you :)
