Many people worry about what questions they will be asked in an interview, but it is nearly impossible to know for sure.

But when you know how to handle the types of questions, you can respond effectively to anything they ask.

We will also learn what questions are inappropriate, and how to respond to them. Participants will have opportunities to practice and receive coaching in a safe and supportive environment.

From preparation, to interview, to follow-up, you will be ready to take on all the main types of interviews.
