О курсе

The goal of hiring managers is not just to hire people who need a job. It’s to hire people who believe in their organization, its mission and the work that’s involved in the job position. Every hiring manager knows: Hire people to do a job and they’ll work for your money. Hire people who believe in the work and they’ll work for their passion. And this is not a case of “fake it until you make it.” You have to be genuine about your belief in an organization and its mission. That means you have to have researched the industry, the company, and the position – and be able to show how your goals in life align with the company’s mission. Having done so will shape the impression you convey as a candidate, the way you answer traditional questions, and the way you demonstrate that you’re the right candidate for the job. This course is the second in a five-course specialization. We recommend that courses #1, #2 and #3 be taken in sequence. Course #4 - on resume and cover letter writing - can be taken in any sequence, while course #5 is the capstone for the specialization as a whole. This course can be thought of as "Interviewing I", while course #3 is "Interviewing II." Course #3 covers more advanced interview formats, including behavioral and situational interviews - along with the special case of telephone screenings. The logic for including telephone screenings - which happen at the start of the interview process - late in this specialization on interviewing is that those screenings, while happening early in the process, involve all the skills that you'll learn from course #1 through course #3. As for this course, it will teach you how to: 1. Do thorough research on a company of your choice. 2. Prepare for those critical first 3-5 minutes of an interview (when many recruiters say an interview is either won or lost). 3. Prepare for the all important "Tell Me About Yourself" question. 4. Prepare for traditional interview questions. 5. Use strategies for handling the salary question. We don't teach you salary negotiation techniques, but we do teach you how to avoid putting yourself in a weak negotiation position. 6. Prepare an elevator speech - all three variations. 7. Use persuasive speech techniques to present professional accomplishments and qualifications in a manner that conveys benefits to a potential employer. 8. Use persuasive speech techniques to convince a potential employer of your interest, motivation and preparation for a particular position. 9. Adapt your nonverbal communication style to the expectations of English-speaking interviewers....

This course is really effective. I found the quiz really tough. But this course will immensely help you to prepare your interview. I highly recommend to learners. And thank you to the instructor.

Without any doubt. It's 5 star course. Great content.\n\nJust one problem, the quizzes doesn't have proper acceptable answers and their is no escape plan for this.

The Testing was difficult and not very helpful. I feel like the test had material that was not covered in the course. If you fail the test you should have something leading you back to study sections so you can reivew the material that you fail. I in my group was not the only one to feel this course lacked all the correct information to get 100% on all the test. I'm glad this one is done and in the books.

Ok, what I really like about this course are the instructors and how they approach the topic. You learn everything from preparing to doing the actual interviews including challenging topics like negotiating the salary. I normally would rate this course with 5 stars but what extremely annoys me are the assignments. Quizes are hard and so are the recordings you have to prepare. This would be OK if passing the assignment would not be associated with playing the lottery. You need 16 out of 20 points (5 questions with 4 points max) to pass an assignment. Getting 4 points is really hard since you have to perfectly fullfill the respective evaulation criteria (e.g. do a 5 minute talk --> Was the talk perfectly effective? Speaker perfectly enthusiastic? etc.). Doing so is nearly impossible for the average student because nearly nobody is a perfect speaker. Before knowing how hard it is to pass I rated many other students with 3 points per question, not knowing that they would fail. And under normal circumstances I would have given them 2 points because the evaluation criteria are really hard to accomplish, if you are honest. Moreover, often you only have one reviewer and deadlines can't be met because nobody or only one person review your assignment. Submissions are also often lacking, so you can't evaluate them, which is necessary to pass the course. In the end, I like the content of this course but I feel that it's much too difficult and random to pass assignments. Of all the 10 courses I did on Coursera this one was the hardest to pass and I'm about to quit it since you have to spend a lot of money when it takes so long to finish.
