AEC Success: Strategies for a Successful Interview
We have all been through the interview process, either through applying for a job/promotion or chasing a project. We also often follow established templates that almost everyone uses which result in eye rolling by the interviewers. This online interactive course can help you get out of this rut so that you can develop a fresh look for your next interview in pursuit of a project. You will learn what to research before the interview, how to observe and analyze the environment of the interview location, a strategic sitting layout and how to use all of this to your advantage prior to the interview. This course will show you how to manage the pace of the interview and how to answer tough questions. Finally, you'll learn how to elegantly end the interview and which follow-up activities will help you stand out among the thundering herd. Learn what to do and what not to do to subtly manage your client interview to ensure you and your team members shine! (Fundamental – 1 hour).
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
• Describe your team to your advantage.
• Define the steps to prepare for the interview.
• Explain your agenda and the flow of the meeting.
