Job interviews
Materials and tasks for job interview courses

For your first class

A. Attendance.  The first session (class) is crucial.  You will not be allowed to attend the rest of the course if you do not attend the first session.  The first session is obligatory in order to be admitted to the subsequent classes.

B. Trios - or pairs

You will be working in  trios (groups of 3 people).  For your first class, decide who is going to be in your trio.

Left overs after division into groups of 3 people (trios).  There will never be more than 2 people who are left over.  After division into trios, if there are one or two people who are not in a trio, then do this:

  • For one left over person, join a trio (to make 4 people).
  • For two left over people, each person should join a different trio (to make 2 groups of 4 people).

In some classes you will work in  pairs - you will be told this early on, probably before the first class.  If one person is left over, then form one group of three people.

C. Materials.  For the first session, bring the items indicted below.  Maker sure that you have all the items before you come to class.  You must have all the items in order to attend the first class, and thus to come to the whole course.  Some items are per person, some per trio or pair.

  • Print out the check list below, and mark each item after you have done or made it.  To print only the check list (and save ink and paper), select the check list table (with white background below), and then print the selection.  Print vertically (portrait) on one single A4 size page, portrait (upright) style.  B&W is fine.
  • Bring the printed check list to your first class, with all items done and in your possession.
  • Pay attention to all instructions (e.g., CV on one page only).

Mark when done

Check list.  Print out and mark this check list Make sure that it is on a single, A4, portrait (upright) sheet of paper Bring to the first class, with all items accomplished.

  • 1a.  Your CV in English, corrected by a native or near-native English speaker.

    • You may use the model provided here.  Once you have clicked on this link, you will see the model CV.  Save the file to your disk, and then load it into MS Word, and convert it into a MS Word file to use.  Your CV should be as good as or better than the model.

    • Make sure that your CV is done in a professional manner.  Think about the reader, not about yourself!  Accessibility (reader friendliness) is a key criterion.

    • That means also having it corrected by a native speaker.

    • You will need as many copies as there are trios in the class plus one, i.e., number of students in the class divided by three.  (For a class of 15 people, print 5 copies.)  Same number for classes working in pairs.

    • One page maximum.

  • 2.  Your LinkedIn profile in English, corrected by a native speaker.  If you do not have a LinkedIn profile, do one well before the start of the course.  If you have one and it needs improvement, do it.  Before you print it, make sure that you join groups, add skills, add news, companies, etc.
  • 3.  Recording equipment & media.  This will depend on the institute where your class is - find out what is needed.  Possibilities include:  Small digital camcorder cassette; Camcorder re-writable DVD; digital camera with video recording function; your own personal portable computer with camera and direct recording facility (such as webcam); your own camcorder or camera used as a camcorder.  You will need at least one per trio or one per pair.  You worek will be more convenient if you have one each.
    Your recording time for one session will be need to be a minimum of 20 mins
    You will need to be able to transfer the video file to a computer, to view and make screen shots.

  • 6.  Go to this page:  Tips for job interviews.

    • Choose one of the pages numbered 1 to 7.

    • Make one hard copy (printed on paper) of your chosen page.

    • Make sure that you print a different document for each person in your trio; each person in your trio should print a different page.

  • 6.  Print one copy per trio of the job ads provided here.
    Print only the first series (for interviews 1, 2 and 3), one ad per page.


For subsequent sessions

For each class, you will need to:

Prepare classes;

Coach your candidate for the upcoming interview;

Analyze your interview with your candidate;

Write memos about the interviews.

Peace and survival of life on Earth as we know it are threatened by human activities that lack a commitment to humanitarian values.  Destruction of nature and natural resources results from ignorance, greed, and a lack of respect for the Earth's living things... .  It is not difficult to forgive destruction in the past, which resulted from ignorance.  Today, however, we have access to more information, and it is essential that we re-examine ethically what we have inherited, what we are responsible for, and what we will pass on to coming generations.  Clearly this is a pivotal generation... .  Our marvels of science and technology are matched if not outweighed by many current tragedies, including human starvation in some parts of the world, and extinction of other life forms... .  We have the capability and responsibility.  We must act before it is too late.  Tenzin Gyatso the fourteenth Dalai Lama.
