Interview and Selection Package

Why take this cred?

No matter what your career goal is, there's one thing that's certain: you'll need to understand the selection process to achieve it.

And unless you're naturally calm and good at pitching yourself in stressful situations, interviews can be challenging. It doesn't matter how good your application is - if you fall apart in the interview, you're not getting the job.

This credential gives you access to the the basics of interview survival: how to present yourself confidently, answer common interview questions, implement interview strategies, and even how to negotiate aspects of your employment and understand the selection process.

This credential is an introductory course which earns you a Progress Badge. A progress badge is awarded a Certificate of Achievement which can be downloaded as a PDF document. A Progress Badge can go towards achieving a Digital Badge.
