What you'll learn

Unit 1 - Interview skills

In this interactive eBook, we’ll start with the basics: exactly what you need to do before, during, and after your interview to give yourself the best chance of landing the job. We’ll go into detail about how to hone your communication skills, how to make an excellent first impression, what to wear, and the etiquette on following up with the employer or hiring manager afterwards.

Unit 2 - Zoom interview tips

Are you preparing for a virtual interview? It may sound scary, but don’t worry – this section will tell you everything you need to know to prepare to be interviewed via video, including how to dress, and familiarising yourself with the technology.

Unit 3 - How to do a video interview

Here, two recruitment experts from Hinterview explain the video interviewing process, and give their professional insight into how you can make an excellent impression and seal the deal on landing that dream job.

Unit 4 - Types of psychometric tests

Psychometric testing is incredibly popular amongst employers and hiring managers these days as a way to determine which applicants have the skills to perform well in the advertised vacancy. Here, we’ll run through every type of psychometric testing you could possibly encounter, and exactly what they involve.

Unit 5 - Practise psychometric tests

Following on from the previous section, here, you’ll get to test your skills for real! We’ve created a range of psychometric test questions of every possible type, so you can see what you’re great at, and what you need to improve.

Counselling and Psychology

I always knew that a career focused around helping people achieve their goals was perfect for me. That’s why I became a tutor.

My 30-year stride in education started with childminding, to working with pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. I then tutored in a national reading programme and went on to become a Higher-Level TA. I’m elated to say I graduated with a First-Class BA Honours Degree when I was 50 – living proof that it’s never too late to chase your dreams!

Marine biology, jellyfish conservationist, hairdresser, fitness instructor… I have an eclectic backstory! Art is my passion and one of my proudest moments was achieving my Masters in Fine Art. I then requalified as an Art teacher to share my knowledge with my students. For most of my career, I’ve supported vulnerable students with additional needs such as SEMH and SEN.
