English for Job Interviews
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. I'm stuck!
Does that describe you? Well, you're not alone.
- on-line job ads generate an average of 300 applicants
- the average resume gets UNDER 30 seconds attention
- job seekers who only respond to job ads 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 TWO English mistakes, your chances of an interview drop nearly 60%.
- With three or more mistakes, you chances 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
