innov8 career transition - overcoming the challenges of internal interviews

Applying for and being interviewed for a role with a current employer may appear straightforward, after all, the organisation, people and culture are familiar and past performance is known.  However, recruiting managers report that internal candidates often have a "false sense of security", are ill prepared and under perform at the interview.  Internal interviews are not casual conversations about performance development and require as much preparation as external applications. 

Half day workshops to focus on preparing for internal interviews to demonstrate abilities and achievements, in order to present a strong application.  Programme includes:

Skills audit & analysis - Winning CVs & application forms - Preparing evidence - Interview & selection skills - Turning the internal interview from a challenge into an advantage
