English for Job Interviews
These courses will help you get the job and build the career you want. Learn the right kind of Business English to give you a competitive edge.
I've been looking for a job, but I'm having a hard time getting my foot in the door. And when I get an interview, I think I don't make a good enough first impression.
Does that sound like you? Then consider this:
- an on-line job posting generates an average of 300 applicants
- the average resume gets less than 30 seconds attention
- job seekers who apply only to posted job applications have a success rate of about 1%
And your chances get even worse if you make spelling or grammar mistakes.
- If your cover letter or resume has just 2 small English mistakes, your chances of getting an interview can drop nearly 60%.
- If more than that, the chances can easily drop more than 90%.
Getting a new job with more pay is not easy. You need to have a good CV and good cover letter just to get a chance at an initial interview, and you need to perform well in that interview just to get a chance at a job.
In our job-interview preparation classes, you will improve your CV and resume and practice both general and job specific interviewing and presentation skills.
You will learn the rules of the game and develop the skills needed not only to get this next job but which will also make your subsequent job searches so much easier.
Thank you so much. I really think it was a valuable journey at Impact Language. And it came to a perfect result. I got the university job offer, and that really made me feel excited. I got it by the confidence you gave me! Anny Y., Business Administrator
Our job interview courses are specially designed to give you an advantage in your next interview.
Each course has 4 core modules, and each module consists of 4 one-hour lessons. You may choose to complete as many modules as you wish or to repeat modules as necessary. You may take lessons on a daily, twice-weekly, or weekly basis. However, each module must be completed within one month.
Impact has a good study atmosphere and the teacher is friendly. It's a practical, more relaxed way to learn English. After taking the interview lessons, I had 5 job interviews and just started my new job! Janice Chan, Secretary
As our job interview courses are on a private, one-to-one basis, they are available only during the daytime between 12 noon and 5:00 PM. If you wish to have a private evening class, we charge an additional peak-time fee.
Each lesson lasts for 55 minutes with the last 5 minutes for wrapping up and exiting the classroom. Classes start on time, so students should try to arrive at least 5 minutes early.
Fees are paid in advance. Lessons that fall on a public holiday can be rescheduled to an alternate day or the following week.
- Module 1: The CV and Cover Letter
- Module 2: The Interview - Your Background and Skills
- Module 3: Answering the One Big Question
- Module 4: Following Up and Digging Your Well
Fees and SchedulesPlease see our private instruction page for more information.
We can also help you if you want to prepare for IELTS or the LPAT Exam. If you just want to work on improving general conversation skills - a must for career development! - then join one of our fun small group discussion classes.
