Interview Skills Workshop: Notes & Resources

This is a living collection of resources that I share in my Interview Skills workshop to prepare Masters students in Singapore for the international jobs markets. It includes all the resources I refer to in the workshop and further reading. You may also find these Speaking, Executive Presence & Confidence resources useful

Request the full NBS Masters 2018 Interview Skills Workshop slides and materials here.

The purpose of the workshop is for the students to learn:

  • Understand the common interview types, uses and methods and how to prepare for them
  • How to use the job ad or job description to prepare for the interview
  • How to answer the common questions
  • How to prepare for behavioral & situational interview methods
  • Interview body-language & paralinguistics
  • Self-management during the interview
  • How to build the working relationship with the interviewer
  • How to leave a first impression & last impression

Please contact me here if you would like to discuss how you may go further in this topic, watch my videos about how Executive Coaching can help you or Group Coaching can accelerate your team's effectiveness.

Please use the comments section at the foot of the page to suggest resources you have found useful on this topic and I'll add them for the benefit of others.





The InterviewCanvas

The Behavioural or Fit Interview is a common component of the hiring process. Regardless of your skills and competencies, your performance as Interviewer or Candidate can still make a dramatic difference between success and failure.

I developed the InterviewCanvas series of tools based on my experience coaching candidates and hiring managers to improve their interview performance. Download the InterviewCanvas here

While there are many great books and web resources on the subject, I could not find a simple tool to guide either party through the minimum preparation for a professional interview. So I built these tools.

The InterviewCanvas is work-in-progress. Your feedback is the main source of further development, so please send me your comments in the feedback box below.

Please contact me for commercial, training or educational use of the InterviewCanvas tools. Otherwise, the InterviewCanvas is currently free to download for personal use.

Accadence also offers Interview Skills training in a one-to-one setting either face-to-face, or over Zoom. From decoding the job description to post-interview debrief, you will get the training you want tailored for your needs and practice your interview technique until you are satisfied.

Prepare by making the first draft of your InterviewCanvas ready and bring your latest CV/Resumé, and ideally a Job Description for your target role or close to what you are aiming for.
