Préparation aux entretiens en anglais

Les objectifs du cours

This English as a foreign language course not only attempts to improve the students' fluency in English but also explores the attitudes and expectations of a cross-cultural American and English job interview in finance. Rather than inculcating a litany of identical and stereotypical answers to interview questions, it will focus on revealing the personality and character of the candidate. Each student hones his English story-telling skills so as to persuasively communicate the singular passion and enthusiasm that drive him and make a memorable impression on the jury.

Plan du cours

A pragmatic and empirical approach that gives students ample opportunity to define themselves along the following lines:

  • Tell me about yourself
  • Honesty
  • Emotion, passion & enthusiasm
  • Brick walls & success stories
  • Brain teasers
  • Technical knowledge of the industry

Students are filmed during mock interviews.
