TOP 6 INTERVIEW TIPS FOR NEW COLLEGE GRADUATES

No comments

For any recent college graduate, job interviews can be nerve-wracking, especially if you haven’t interviewed in a while. That’s especially true when you’re interviewing for a position in a new industry, competing with hundreds of candidates who’re in the same or similar situation as you.

Despite of the challenges, the more you prepare – by practicing your interview skills, researching the company, being able to show why you’re qualified, and by following up after the interview – the better chance you’ll get at securing a job offer! Now let’s take a look at some useful tips for acing an interview for college graduates!

Job placement

Research The Company in Depth

The employer will expect you to know quite a bit about the company you’re interviewing for. Prior to your interview, check the company’s web site and social media pages, learn about its values and visions, scroll through its latest projects, and think about what you can do to better their products and services. You can dig even deeper by talking to a current or previous employee of the company and conduct informative interviews with them beforehand.

Customize Your Answers for Common Questions

There are some typical questions that are being asked at almost every job interview, such as “Tell me about yourself.” “What are your strengths and weaknesses?” “Tell me about your greatest accomplishments.” “Why do you want this job?” “Where do you see yourself in 5/10 years?” You can find sample answers to these questions online. Read how others answer these questions, and plan your own answers according to your situation.

Prepare 5-7 Sample Stories

Scenario questions such as “tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a coworker and how did you handle it” or “Share with us a time when you made a mistake and how did you resolve it” are a must in job interviews. Make sure to prepare some examples beforehand. Start with the situation by describing the context and problem. Then explain what you did to improve the situation and describe the results in quantifiable terms. This demonstrates that you understand the importance and the impact of your personal contributions. With these stories prepared in advance, you can adapt them to various scenarios.

Show Your Eagerness to Learn

Some of the attributes that employers look for in candidates are curiosity, eagerness to learn, as well as the ability to quickly adapt to new environment and pick up new tools. Aa a new graduate, you may not have loads of past experience relevant to your new position, but your learning ability is gold. Show your future employers that you are a fast learner (this can be demonstrated through scenarios), and that you are excited to face new challenges and opportunities in a new industry.

Pay Attention to Your Body Language

During the interview, watch your body language as your poses and gestures can reveal your personality. Shake hands firmly, make eye contact as you articulate your points, avoid fiddling, and sit up straight. If you are super nervous and don’t know how to act, remember, smile is your best weapon. Smiling isn’t hard to do during interviews, and it shows confidence and amiability, which is a huge necessity in workplaces.

Develop Intelligent Questions

Towards the end of your job interviews, you’ll be asked whether you have any questions for the interviewer. Don’t just say “I’m good” or “I don’t have any questions”. Asking questions demonstrates your level of interest in the job; it is also a great chance to show your knowledge of the industry as well as your eagerness to learn and contribute. Develop 3-5 questions ahead of time, and jot them down to memorize before your interview.

As the largest career college in Canada, we attributes the growth in our success to identifying the gap between the formal education available and the realities of the working world. We fulfill the needs of learners by developing customized programs for each student, while meeting the requirements for convenient and effective training at an affordable cost.

Six Tips to Score above 60 in CAEL Speaking Module

No comments

Are you going to appear for CAEL assessment? Do you have questions on how to achieve the desired band scores in English? This article is just in time and on point to acquaint you with the tips that could be followed in order to make it easy for you to meet the requirements of English language assessment.   This article is just in time and on point to acquaint you with the tips that could be followed in order to make it easy for you to meet the requirements of English language assessment.

Here’s what you should do to improve your band score in Speaking:

  • Speak clearly and at a natural pace: It’s important to be clear and concise whenever we are taking a speaking exam. Some candidates try to develop an accent and thus, go off topic sometimes which results in a much lower band score. For you to achieve the score you need, it’s of utmost importance to speak clearly and in an organised manner.  
  • Do not worry about your accent: As a candidate you do not need to worry about your accent, all that should matter is the organisation of the content and the delivery of the content. You should start speaking as per the prompt and must be able to finish your talk in time.

  • Take notes: Taking
    notes can actually help you be fluent in your content and, eventually, you will
    sound confident, which in turn will have a positive effect on your performance
    during the speaking task. It’s crucial to make notes while you have time to
    prepare your answer for speaking.

  • Manage your time: In CAEL, each test is time bound; when it comes to speaking evaluation, you will be given a specific amount of time to plan and record your answer; do not panic during the preparation time and organize your speech in continuity as per your question prompt. Time has a significant role to play in CAEL, specifically in speaking module.

  • Use a wide range of vocabulary
    and grammatical structures:
    It’s absolutely fundamental to
    use academic English because CAEL tests you on your ability to use academic
    English. If you are able to convince the examiner of your word bank and also
    are able to use it at ease, there’s nothing that can stop you from getting the
    desired band score.

  • Practice using a computer: Since CAEL is a computer delivered test, it is, thus, advised that you should practice on a computer since day one. It will not only acquaint you with the pattern, but you will also feel much relaxed while you take the test. Speaking to oneself can be weird, so if you already practice speaking on a computer, it would be much easier for you at the test centre.

Five Factors to Keep in Mind Before You Book the English Language Test

No comments

In a country like Canada, it is difficult to prove your professional capabilities, if you are an immigrant, without taking a language test in either English or French or both in some cases. This is the reason that English Language Assessments play a key role in deciding your pathway to success, because language requirements are to be fulfilled in most of the professions. If you are one of the immigrants with English as a second language, continue reading the article to have a better understanding of all that requires your consideration before you make up your mind to sit for a language test. Let’s discuss each of these factors, one at a time.

Mode of Test

First thing that you should search about before booking a language is –mode of conduct. It simply means how the test would be conducted; we need to know if the test is paper based or computer based. Many of us are still not able to concentrate if we have to read something from a computer screen, and if you end up choosing a test that is computer-based, you will not be able to manage time and will keep jumping from one screen to the other. Thus, it becomes crucial to decide which mode you are most comfortable in and finalize accordingly.

Pattern of Test

Apart from the mode of test, pattern of the test stands second in line when it comes to crucial factors affecting your score in the language assessment. All the language tests are based on four modules, that is, reading, writing, listening and speaking. The patter for each differs though. For instance, there are tests in which speaking comes first (CAEL), and there are others which want you to take the listening module in the beginning (IELTS). Not only the sequence, but the kind of questions that each module has in different language tests, is also a deciding factor in your band scores. Take CAEL for example, it has every module covered in different sections, which means you will be doing Reading, Speaking and listening or writing at the same time in most of the sections, whereas, when it comes to IELTS, you will be assessed on one skill/module at a time.

Duration of test

Third of all, is the duration of the test. For some people, it becomes difficult to sit for all the modules in one go and get done with it, while there are others who specifically would prefer tests which will allow them to take the test in one go. It has a lot of psychological bearing which indirectly affects our confidence, concentration and eventually our score, so, keep the duration of the test in mind, before finalizing your test type.

Availability of Dates and Test Centres

Whether a test is available in your area and at the time you wish to take it, is another factor to be kept in mind. It can be a burden if you have to travel to another place for the sake of taking test; it will not only be tiring physically, but psychologically as well. Sometimes, there are tests which have restrictions when it comes to booking a test on a particular date and time, if there are not many options available, you might have to shuffle your schedule or take an off from work. Difficult, isn’t it?

Acceptance of Test

Finally, it’s indispensable to check if the test you have chosen is accepted for the purpose you are taking a test. There are individuals who book a test without knowing the requirements of eligibility as far as language is concerned. They do not only end up wasting money, but their efforts to get through the test as well.There have been incidents when people were required to take IELTS (Academic), but ended up taking IELTS (GENERAL), simply, because they had been too indolent to search about the eligibility requirements.

Before you decide which test to take, it’s always better to think of these five key elements that would make your choice easy and perfect.
