Course Description

We accountants are more project geeks than natural performers. We tend to prefer task lists to presenting, and that means we are not always at our best in an interview situation. In an interview, we do not know the interviewers’ agenda; or what they are looking for; or the questions we will face. In addition, the location and the environment will usually be unknown to us. 

This course is designed to help accountants and other professionals prepare for interviews by structuring it like a finance project. A job interview takes us out of our comfort zone. This course offers a structure that will give us a firm foundation to venture into this unfamiliar arena.

The structure presented allows you to match your skills and experience to the requirements of the role, and to present your project experience in its best light.

Get ready for that interview!"
