How to understand what the hiring manager is really asking and how to answer the questions.
In this course, Carole Martin focuses on how to respond to the factors of the job, rather than answering questions "correctly." As a professional interviewer, she has spent years on the hiring side of the desk. She knows what she’s looking for in every job candidate and exactly how to find it.
Plan for preparing yourself to best answer every interviewer's three primary concerns:
- Can you perform the job?
- Are you a good fit with the company culture?
- Can the company afford you?
Coach Martin shows you where to find the critical factor interviewers seek. She shows you how to present yourself in the best possible way on the spot and under pressure.

About the instructor
"Carole Martin is an expert
on the subject of interviewing."
I have strived to make INTERVIEWING my niche - my area of expertise.
I am a SME - "a Subject Matter Expert" on the subject of job interviewing.
My background is diverse in that I have worked in a variety of environments ranging from Fortune 500 companies to startups, as well as non-profit and academia. I've worked in High Tech and Manufacturing, Aerospace and Biotechnology.
As a Human Resources Manager for many years, I interviewed thousands of people and watched them make major mistakes - and lose the job to someone else. Although I wanted to help them, I couldn't because I was on the other side of the desk. After I received my Master's degree in Career Counseling, I made a decision to change what I did because I wanted to help people. My work has been extremely rewarding because of the wonderful emails I receive telling me how I made a difference in the life of another person - helping them get the job or career they wanted.
My clients range from attorneys to administrative assistants and everyone else in between: FBI agents, law enforcement, fire, police and other public agencies, public defenders, project managers, public relations professionals, product managers, sales people, accounting and finance people at all levels, high-tech IT experts, teachers, pre-med students and grads, health care professionals, and even beauty queens.
For me, what counts in my work is the caring and connection I make with the people. I really want them to succeed, so I will do whatever it takes to help them; and that includes follow-up email for as long it takes. We practice, we talk strategy and focus, and together we come up with ideas to set them apart from the other candidates.
