You have got through to the final stage of the recruitment process, all that stands in your way of that job offer, is the interview. We know what is required for interview success, to get you the job offer that you deserve.
During this course Aimee shares with you her extensive knowledge developed as a top recruiter and careers coach, to ensure you perform on the day to the best of your ability.
Aimee takes you through each stage of the interview. She will show you how to prepare, so you go in to that interview with true confidence. She will take you through example questions and answers, these include competency based, strength based and curveball questions. She will show you how you can really excel on the day and what to do after the interview (so important, it does not end when the interview ends), to make sure the interviewer remembers you. Aimee also gives tips on other types of interviews, including telephone and video interviews.

Hi, I am Aimee Bateman, Founder and CEO for Careercake.com. I have been a commercial recruiter for fourteen years and have conducted more than 4000 interviews, for small businesses as well as global brands. When it comes to understanding what goes into a successful interview, I understand, but I want to make sure that you understand too. That is what this course is about.
I want to talk to you about other types of interview. We often get asked questions about telephone interviews, video interviews, Skype interviews and we are going to cover those now.
I have given you 5 themes, for you to go away and think of examples for strength based questions and competency based questions, but I want to give you some specific questions to help you that are really common and very likely to come up in your interview.
What is your biggest weakness, my goodness, I know that people hate this question. In the last five years, when I have been doing YouTube stuff, I get asked every day “How so I answer this, how do I answer this?” What they are really looking for, they want to see your level of self- awareness and they want to know that you will look them in the eye and tell them the truth. A lot of the time, people ask this question, because they want to know that you will sit there and be real.
Now your level of self-awareness is your absolute greatest tool in your career and in your life in general. If you know what makes you tick, where you thrive, where you die a death, you will make better decisions. Not only that, when you are sitting there, looking somebody in the eye, they will believe those decisions.
Now I get really, really excited and as I have said I have put a huge amount of energy into this, and I hope you join me and together we can show the world how good you are.

I have purchased the interview masterclass as well and while there is some crossover, this is a really useful course. There is a lot of information, theory and many tools you can use to really make yourself stand out. Worth every penny.

This course has taught me various useful techniques which helped me prepare for a job interview and today I got the job offer. Thanks so much! I am completely sure I couldn't have done it without your help as I was unsuccessful in securing a job even after giving a dozen interviews.

This is the best ever interview tutorial! I got my dream job after watching this video (and preparation of course!). The employer offered me a more senior job after I had the first interview because they thought my performance in the interview was really good and can do a more senior job than the one I interviewed for. Thank you Aimee!

I have been reading articles and watching videos to help you through the interview for a while, and I didn't know what I have been missing but I had a feeling I was missing a lot. The 58 minutes ''comprehensive course'' I would call it, covered every aspect and answered every question I could get asked, and what is extremely exciting about it that it can help you to come up with questions yourself to ask to the interviewer, which will leave a good impression about you and make them remember you with a positive energy. loved every second, and opened my eyes and drew my attention to lots of small tips that have colossal impact on your interview. If you want to excel in your career and get the job.. my advice to you.. take the course. Thank you Aimee for being such a great help.

Interviews have changed a lot since my last interview twenty years ago, this course gave me a great insight into how interviews can be structured and how to prepare for them. I found the course to help me appreciate the benefit of preparation before and after the interview. After some poor interviews prior to this course hopefully I will be able to present myself better for future applications. Thank you for your help in what will hopefully further my career!

Good advice. Be aware that not employers ask questions in this format so prepare to changing your answers to fit other formats. This course makes you feel like you can achieve anything.

Another brilliant course presented from Aimee Bateman that I am cordially thankful of. Progressively, I loved a star rule, bat back strategy, and employee's questions that help in the best preparation. This is totally satisfied, up to date and well-differentiated knowledge that ensures someone to step up for a job confidently. Thanks.

It was nice to hear I am doing some things right. It was important to learn about things I should change. It is always wonderful to watch your presentations; I would describe them as the color yellow.
