What is the Interview Success Accelerator?
The Interview Success Accelerator (Student Edition) is the most comprehensive collection of teaching and practice resources to help students get ready for a job interview. It is based on more than 20 years experience interviewing literally thousands of potential employees across multiple organisations and small businesses in Australia.
It provides subscribers with a range of resources that will help them learn:
- the most common and, in some cases, the most challenging interview questions students are likely to face when attending an interview
- what to include in an answer to an interview question, and also what to leave out
- how to prepare answers to challenging yet commonly asked interview questions
- how to structure that answer to make a positive impression on the interviewer
- suggested responses based on what employers are looking for from an interviewee
- the most effective and efficient ways to learn their answers responses through practice interview videos and practice MP3 audio recordings.
Why do I need the ISA?
We all know that being asked to attend the interview is just part of the process for getting a job. The real challenge is once you're in the interview. And you only have a few minutes to make the best impression you possibly can.
How does someone make themselves stand out from the others in the interview when they are competing against other people?
And when you consider the high numbers of people now out of work as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, you can expect to be up against hundreds of people every time you apply for a job.
It will come down to who is the best prepared person in the interview. Plain and simple.
And whether that interview is conducted face-to-face or via a zoom meeting or phone call, the same rule applies: the best prepared and most practiced aplicant will win.
However, a person's performance in an interview shouldn't be a mystery or a surprise.
People can prepare themselves for the interview to give themselves the best chance to win the job interview and get the job.
And using more than 20 years experience and having interviewed hundreds and hundreds of people, I am guiding you on what to say and how to say it. They will be your words and experiences, but I show you step-by-step how to put your answer together so it is the best possible answer you can give.
Then comes the practice. The better practiced you are, the greater your chance to winning the interview and being offered the job. Which is why I have included practice resources including videos and MP3 audio recordings of interview questions so you can practice no matter where you are.
In my years as an interviewer I have been repeatedly astonished by how many people show up to the interview unprepared. It makes it a very simple decision for the interviewer in those cases. That person won't be considered for the position. It's as simple, and as brutal, as that!
But for you, it doesn't need to be like that. By investing in the Interview Success Accelerator, you will be better prepared, more confident and more likely to make the positive impression every interviewer is looking for.
How does it work?
The Interview Success Accelerator is made up of a range of resources all designed to make you the best prepared applicant attending the interview.
The resources included in the program are:
QUESTION AND ANSWER GUIDEBOOK
This lists 50 of the most common, and in some cases, the most challenging QUESTIONS you're likely to face in an interview, AND provides you with the guidelines on how to ANSWER them. The questions are grouped under 'themes' or categories so that you get an idea of the areas the interviewer is likely to explore with you. This is invaluable because now you won't be stuck for an answer.
QUESTION AND ANSWER WORKBOOK
This printable resource lists the same 50 questions and provides you with the space to prepare your answer. So now you can begin taking action by getting yourself ready for the interview. Use the suggestions from the Q & A Guidebook to help you develop and refine your ideal answer.
VIDEO PRACTICE MODULES
Once you've prepared your answers it's time to practice delivering your answers. This is quite hard to do on your own. That's why the video practice modules were created. I fire the questions at you, while the guidelines to answering it appear on the screen. You respond as though I am interviewing you by using the on-screen guidelines as well as the notes you've prepared in the Workbook. Through this interaction you get better and better at answering the questions. The video practice modules are broken up into the same themes or categories as the Q&A Guidebook
MP3 AUDIO PRACTICE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS
Often when you're on the go, there's time to practice answering the interview questions. So we have also created the 50 questions as MP3 audios for you to listen to,
pause, practice saying your answer, and then move on to the next
question. That way you can use your time so much more effectively by
using every chance you have to practice your technique.
It's easy to become overwhelmed when getting
yourself prepared for an interview. That's why a preparation checklist
has been included for you to follow. If you complete each step of the
checklist you will know you're working through all of the right steps
and moving in the right direction to being prepared for your interview.
The checklist identifies all of the important steps to take so that you
have the peace of mind knowing you're ready. Some of the steps may be
obvious. However there's many steps included that people just never
think about in their preparation. This way you will be better organised
and better prepared.

interview. To make sure you have the ability to manage your nerves, this

them on display in their room or have them out when preparing. Print
them out and put them in a place where you will see them easily and
BONUS BOOK: 21 GREAT QUESTIONS TO ASK AT AN INTERVIEW
Every interviewer will likely ask at the end of an interview, "Do you have any questions for us?". Never, ever say "No." That answer scores you zero points and makes you sound as though you're not that interested in the job. This book gives you 21 of the best questions for a candidate to ask the interviewer so the interviewer sits up and takes notice of you, right until the very end of the interview.

Want to Earn While You Learn?
If you're interested in making some money easily while you learn how to nail your next job interview, here's something you should do as soon as you enrol.
When you enrol in the Interview Success Accelerator course you can sign up to become an Affiliate of the course.
As an affiliate, you are paid a commission if you promote the course in a social media post (for example, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest) or by email, and someone enrols in the course as a result of your post. To get paid you need to simply include your unique affiliate link in the post and encourage people to enrol in the course by clicking on your affiliate link. You will be allocated your own affiliate link when you sign up to become an affiliate.
If people enrol in the course by clicking on your affiliate link that you included in your post or email about the Interview Success Accelerator, because it identifies you as the promoter, we pay you a commission. Simple as that.
Just think of how easy it would be to promote this course on social media.
And the more often you promote it, the greater the chance of someone enrolling, and the greater the opportunity for you to make money.
The current Affiliate commission is 10%. That means we pay you 10% of the price the school or individual student pays when they enrol in the course by clicking on your link. And this is paid to whenever they renew their subscription. For example of someone subscribes to the monthly subscription and keep renewing their subscription, you'll receive a commission each month they renew. If it's the quarterly or annual plan they're on, you'll receive a commission every 3 month or 12 months, whichever plan they are on.
However this opportunity to become an affiliate and earn a commission from promoting the course is only available to those people who sign up and enrol in the Interview Success Accelerator themselves. In other words you have to be a student of the course before you can start promoting the course to others. Otherwise you can't genuinely promote it and speak truthfully about the course and its benefits if you haven't experienced it for yourself.
We're genuine about how valuable this course is and we truly believe in it. We want you to be just as genuine and have the same level of belief whenever you promote it. It's about being authentic and honest.
So as soon as you enrol in the course you can become an affiliate. And the sooner you do that, the sooner you can be making money.
