Report for seminar ‘Interview technique and tips – putting your best self forward’


By admin - Posted on 20 June 2017

The first CCI seminar of 2017 was successfully held June 19th at Litteraturhuset, Oslo. The topic of the seminar was "Interview technique and tips – putting your best self forward", given by the senior career advisor and recruiter Lene Rutle from NES Advantage Solutions. Despite the bad weather and heavy rain, 60 people from 21 different nationalities, registered online or at the place, attended the seminar.

Lene Rutle had two job-seeking seminars for CCI before. Last year, she talked about “Knowledge of Job Hunting”. This time, she mainly concentrated on how to be successful in a job interview as a candidate. She went through each step of an interview with examples and tips: how to do information preparation, communication channels, number of interviews and focus areas in each interview, how to present yourself, common questions, closing of interview, etc. She unveiled what recruiters are really looking for: qualification, consistency in all channels, trustworthiness, insight of strengths and improvements areas, and motivation.

The seminar lasted more than 2 hours without break, but the audience kept high enthusiasm with questions and discussions until the end of the seminar. The atmosphere of the seminar was quite free. After the seminar, many participants even stood in a long queue and waiting to talk with the speaker with their own questions! The feedbacks from the participants were very positive and good. Most of them were well engaged and inspired by the useful advices and tips. They learned a lot from the seminar and were satisfied with the answers from the speaker. Many people asked for more such seminars in the future.
