Course Description

Course Description

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

A job interview takes us out of our comfort zone. This Online CPE Webinar is designed to help accountants and other professionals prepare for interviews by structuring it like a finance project. This CPE 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. It also gives you a context on what to do before as well as after an interview. It also guides you on when not to accept a job and what should you look for in a candidate if you have to take the role of an interviewer.

Get ready for that interview!"

This Online CPE Webinar Course on Personal Development covers the following Key Topics:

  • The interview skills in the balance sheet format

Delightfully British. Not everything corresponds exactly here in the States, but that made it all the more interesting. Can't wait to check out a future offering from this presenter. P.S.: Great riddle at the start from the host.
