Why do I need all of this? 

We believe that preparing for a job interview is so much more than saying "Ich bin motiviert". It can be a highly stressful situation that requires quick-thinking and looooots of confidence. Our job interview training combines different activities that will help you practice your German in different scenarios, adding to your skills during the interview. 

  1. You will begin working with a German trainer to make sure the language you use is spot on. You will work on an answer to "tell me about yourself" and learn different verbs and expressions to showcase your skills and abilities.
  2. You then participate in different improv and theater exercises to encourage creativity in unknown situations. These games will help you go with the flow of the interview, even if it's a question you didn't prepare for, and they will also add some humor to the process. If you are able to enjoy the interview, you are more likely to come across as someone who knows what they're doing. 
  3. On the second day, we will begin with class that will teach you simple relaxation techniques you can use before, during and even after the interview to calm you down. Don't worry, you don't need special clothes for this or your yoga mat. 
  4. We will end with a mock interview led by a recruiter/HR specialist. You will have 15 minutes to shine bright like a diamond and then get flash feedback. You will also get feedback from the German trainer and your fellow participants.
