  • Questions and Answers – How to appropriately and succinctly answer questions without waffling! Various professional models used. [The S.T.A.R or W.H.O techniques.]
  • Myth busting – Most people get nervous in an interview so myth busting is important in a session such as this. Discussing the interviewer and talking about their responsibilities.
