How to prepare for a job interview?

by Fiona Christie on February 10, 2013

We have had a blog-writing hiatus recently. There just hasn’t seemed time to blog, and we’ve been consumed by other projects. I have become a student myself so have assignments to write, which has squeezed out blogging. Excuses, excuses.

I have started experimenting with prezi, primarily as a way to get some presentations online so I can send to students after a class. I am definitely a prezi novice, so nothing flash, though it’s nice to do something that isn’t powerpoint for a change. I also see it as a way to boil down some of the content I teach to key essentials, as I do think we can over-complicate careers advice sometimes.

So this is a brief post really to embed a recent prezi I did on preparing for job interviews. It also includes a few video links – some I think you will find funny.

I like this post Fiona. The videos are interesting and entertaining too. This will help me lighten up the pressure as I embark on a career path right after my university postgraduate studies.

Great post. Interview preparation is something a lot of people struggle with – even those who have done it many times!
