PERFORMING WELL AT INTERVIEWS LESSON PLAN

 

Materials:

  • Performing Well at Interviews Lesson (see below for printable lesson).  One copy per student of the comprehension passage and exercise sheet.

 

Procedure:

Time: 45 minutes

Method: Introduce the topic by explaining that the best way to handle an interview is to be well prepared.
Have the students read the comprehension passage.
Give them the exercise sheet and ask them to make brief notes on the questions.

Debrief: Ask the group if they found any questions harder than others. If so, discuss ideas for answering them.

Excerpt:

It is normal to feel nervous before an interview but you can do some preparation and learn about the best way to present yourself so that you can overcome your doubts and put on your best performance. Indeed the very fact that you have chosen for interview is already in your favor: it means you have been selected because on paper you seem to meet the company’s criteria. In other words, the company knows something about you and your background.

Your first step in interview preparation, therefore, is to return that interest. Find out as much as you can about the company so that you can show an informed interest in it. Remember, the company is looking for somebody who fits their needs: it is not concerned about helping you further your career interests unless you can offer something useful in return. You will be a more attractive prospect if you can say why you want to work for this company in particular than if you simply explain your wish to be a PR executive, a receptionist, a software developer, working for whichever company will take you on.
