I think this presentation provides many useful information, but some of the stuff presented is unrealistic. The example of the 'lady with the red dress' cannot be applied in real world, because usually a company's management will not accept the request of an interviewee whose application was unsuccessful for a second meeting. Also in most cases companies would refrain from providing a complete "and honest" feedback due to the high subjectivity that would usually be involved in the selection process.

This was a great confidence builder. A lot of ground covered, easy to understand, with great examples. Over the past year and a half I have reviewed this course twice, and took it for credit, after becoming a member. Each time I learned something new.

Good examples of what to do. What not to do is probably even more important to know and he covers that as well.

Thank you, Anonymous, for your positive evaluation, and especially for posing two excellent questions. The challenges that you identify serve to highlight the difference between a

WEBINAR - that can deliver general concepts and
PRIVATE COACHING - that can develop customized strategies.

A coach can work with an individual client to address these and other challenges in light of the factors that are present in his unique situation.

Regarding the two challenges you identify:

1. “The example of the ‘lady with the red dress’ cannot be applied in real world, because usually a company’s management will not accept the request of an interviewee whose application was unsuccessful for a second meeting.”

You are 100% correct. Usually…management will not accept the request…for a second meeting. So how did this lady get a second chance? This is a real case that actually happened. Knowing that management had strong interest in her as a candidate, yet had serious reservations, she wrote a proposal aimed at getting her back in the door, affording the opportunity to address their concerns. They were interested enough to invite her back to present her proposal.

2. “In most cases companies would refrain from providing a complete ‘and honest’ feedback…”

Again you are 100% correct. In MOST cases you will not get COMPLETE feedback.
 In some cases they will not respond at all to questions about how you compare to the ofher candidates
 In some cases (surprisingly) they will respond rather freely and fully.
 And in many cases they will respond partially, especially if you break up the issue into small pieces and ask specific questions such as,
How would you describe the ideal candidate for this position?
Which are the most important qualifications?
How do I compare to this ideal candidate?
Have you met with anyone who has all the qualifications of this ideal candidate?
Etc.

As we know in Finance, even a partial reduction of uncertainty based on incomplete information can be extremely valuable.

Thanks again for the great questions. Feel free to be in touch if you think that I could be of help to you.
