Course outline

1. Start by talking about interviewing skills

Great interviewing skills are something easily communicated in person. And, if you get your audience to develop these skills, you offer a solution that will make their lives easier.

As your audience demands useful and practical content, you should use the content provided to:

  • Explore what is an interview.
  • Discuss the main types of interviews that occur within companies.
  • Examine the different skills that are needed (e.g., questioning and listening skills).

As you share this content, you’ll realize how practical the content is.

Share personal experiences to reinforce these skills in action.

2. Zoom-in on questioning and listening skills

If your audience doesn’t have great questioning and listening skills, they are missing out on so many opportunities.

Simply put, your audience needs to develop these skills.

Whether you’re delivering this course to a large or small audience, you will need to spend time:

  • Discussing active and reflective listening skills.
  • Detailing various types of questioning skills.

Aim to create an atmosphere that builds trust with your audience. And, show them how you’re offering solutions to their needs.

3. Focus on the recruitment interview

Recruitment interviews are the main area that people think of when they hear the word ‘interview’.

Like the food that keeps us all alive, recruitment interviews often are the mainstay of interview skills training courses within companies as well.


Well, recruitment interviews ensure that the company gets the staff that they need to power the organization forward.

As a result, it is a priority to get these skills right.


Of course.

You can use the content provided to discuss the effectiveness of a recruitment interview. The content explores this from the perspectives of both the interviewer and the candidate.

4. Don’t forget about the grievance/discipline interview

It’s easy to overlook the role of interviewing skills in grievance/discipline settings.

Especially, when this is within small to medium-sized enterprises that do not have formal systems in place.

However, the grievance and discipline interview is of such considerable importance within a company that it deserves particular attention.

Use the content to highlight shared skills across various types of interviewing settings.

The course content, supported by examples, will link key aspects of recruitment interviews together.
