Why Interviewing Skills Training ?
Behaviour Interviewing skill is a very reliable and valid candidate selection technique based on the work of Tom Janz, of the University of Calgary. While we all may say that past behaviour is the best indicator of future behaviour, we don’t act as if we believe this when we are interviewing candidates—often because we aren’t certain how to ask questions that will tell us about past performance.This 2 day workshop concentrates on the pre interview preparation, developing questions and their value, the interview techniques that get specific, behaviour-based examples of past performance, and the strategies that follow through on this process.In addition, this workshop focuses on taking the behavioural interview one step further with a twelve-step process to hiring top performers

MOCK INTERVIEW :
It is a practice interview designed to simulate a real job interview as closely as possible. Mock interviews are one of the best ways to improve interview skills and prepare for an interview. The practice gained in a mock interview is invaluable.
Mock interviews can be completed in person, by phone or by video conference. All three methods work well. The key to success in a mock interview is recreating the interview experience as much as possible.
One benefit of a mock interview that is often overlooked is the confidence gained after completing a mock interview. Most job seekers are at least a little intimidated by the interview experience, and some are absolutely terrified when interviewing. This fear can dramatically hurt a job seeker’s interview performance. By completing a mock interview, the job seeker will be more comfortable in the real interview. Like anything, the more you practice, the more confident you will be.
Mock interviews, will be like a real interviews, can take a wide range of forms. It can be traditional interviews, behavioral interviews or other types. Our interviewer can be friendly and make it easy for the job seeker, or the interviewer can be tough and challenging. No matter the type of interview or the style, practice will help.
Mock interviews provide candidates with an opportunity to test out their interview skills with someone who isn’t evaluating them for an actual job. A mock interview may be offered through career services for students or recent alumni, by a career coach or through a local workforce services office for candidates in the process of transitioning to a new opportunity.
Here are some of the benefits of a mock interview:
1. They help you reduce stress and anxiety about interviewing.
If you’re not sure how to answer typical interview questions, mock interviews provide a great opportunity for you to “test drive” your answers. The person conducting the mock interview is most likely a skilled interviewer and can give you feedback on whether or not your response is suitable.
2. They help you boost your confidence.
Job coaches who conduct mock interviews are usually ready to point out your strengths in the interview process. By having confidence in your skills, you will perform better in an actual interview.
3. They provide you with constructive feedback in a low-stress environment.
No one is the perfect candidate, so mock interviews help you clarify responses to certain questions and help you work on areas where you may have weaknesses. In a real interview, there’s often not feedback about your interviewing abilities, so a mock interview is a perfect opportunity to find out why you may be having some difficulty in landing your dream job.
4. They can help you prepare for behavioral-based interview questions.
Many companies use “BI” questions. If you’re not familiar with this type of interviewing, it may be advantageous to give it a practice run in a mock interview.
The expression that practice makes perfect may very well be true with interviewing skills. Take advantage of mock interviewing opportunities even if you think you’re skills are at a very high level. There are things that we can all improve upon when it comes to making a great impression on a prospective employer.

Psychometric tests are often used as part of the recruitment process and are a way for employers to assess your intelligence, skills and personality. Recruiters use the results from these tests to determine whether you would be a suitable match for the company to which you are applying.
The tests are structured to accurately evaluate your capacity to work with others, process information and cope with the stresses of the job.
There are three main areas that the tests explore: your capabilities, aptitude for the job, and to determine whether your personality fits in with the vision of the organisation you are hoping to join. Essentially, the tests are looking to evaluate your intelligence, aptitude and personality, as well as how you handle pressure and your working style.
What are the Different Types of Psychometric Test?
As explained further below, there are essentially three categories: aptitude tests, skills tests and personality tests. Let’s examine each in turn.
1. Aptitude Tests
Aptitude tests aim to assess a specific or general set of skills, though this often depends on the type of job that you are applying for. Categories found within this group include:
Numerical reasoning test. Used to identify how you interpret data, often via a combination of written and statistical information presented in reports, graphs or charts. This can also be used to assess basic mathematical abilities. Try a free sample test below.
Verbal reasoning test. Used as a way to determine your ability to evaluate detailed written information so as to make an informed decision. Try a free sample test below.
Inductive reasoning test. These require you to identify trends or patterns, typically using diagrammatic information. Try a free sample test below.
Diagrammatic reasoning test. These assess your capacity for logical reasoning, using flowcharts and diagrams. Try a free sample test below.
Logical reasoning test. Aims to evaluate your skills in reaching a conclusion. You may be provided with some information and then asked to make a decision on what you have been provided with. As such, these tests are also often known as deductive reasoning tests.
Error checking test. Assesses your ability to quickly identify any errors in complex data sets such as codes, or combinations of alpha-numeric characters.
The type of test that you will have to undertake will be determined by the job type and sector. For example, inductive or logical reasoning assessments are used to evaluate candidates applying for jobs in science, IT or other roles where advanced technical skills may be needed. These tests usually comprise of multiple-choice questions and a specified time frame in which to complete them. Inductive testing can result in the identification of new solutions and strategies to solve the issue, which is why these types of tests are used in many firms who specialise in technological innovation.
2. Skills Tests
Skills tests represent a way for employers to evaluate how quickly you can learn a new skill to competently carry out the job you are applying for. Depending on the job you are hoping to secure, the aptitude test may include something such as designing a basic web page (if you are applying to be a designer) or a financial modelling task (if you are applying for a quantitative role in finance).
Both capability and skills tests are assessed through paper-based exercises consisting of multiple-choice questions completed under exam conditions. Increasingly, psychometric tests are completed online using specialist systems that removes the requirement for a paper-based test.
3. Personality Tests
Personality assessments enable employers to evaluate your suitability based on your behaviour and the way in which you approach your work. This will be used to determine how well you will fit into the organisation and the culture of the business. Your responses will often be cross-referenced with those of a top-performing employee or successful manager, which will be an indication as to whether you share the same characteristics.
Employers look at many factors during the recruitment process, from your knowledge and experience through to your aptitude in areas such as decision making and teamwork. Increasingly, we will use personality tests as a way to determine if you have the right attitude and personality to fit in with the company’s culture and vision.
