For many of us, job interviewing is one of the most difficult things we must do to begin our careers. This course is designed to teach you how to change the way you think about job interviewing to help alleviate the stress and anxiety that comes from interviewing. You will learn what a healthy approach to interviewing looks like, and how to determine the qualities that make you unique, and confidently communicate your value. You will also learn how to prepare for an interview by framing your personal and professional accomplishments using the STAR format to deep dive into them and understand what qualities those examples highlight and what a hiring manager might take away from them. During this course you will apply the STAR format to an example from the House of Dragons series and learn how to avoid creating red flags for the interviewer.
