Acting Classes


Master manipulators control their emotions.


This is a key skill in a job interview. First, for many fear and anxiety take over. As well as requiring the skills to reduce this negative associated response to an interview, you need to take this one step further and act like a confident, charismatic and enthusiastic career professional


Actors are skilled in controlling their emotions. They can cry on cue, take on the persona of a confident business billionaire or if the part requires it, come across as lovable, charming and friendly. By being able to create a character in the job interview you can manipulate the interviewer so they believe that this is your natural state


If your emotions; nervousness and fear, are letting you down, join an acting class




Debate Clubs 


Successful career professionals manipulate the job interview with their ability to think on their feet, to reframe negative comments and to passionately fight their own corner.


Manipulators as well as interviewees need to be compelling in their argument to convince others. Many interviewees fall into the trap of being defensive – this natural strategy will only end in no job offers. Instead learn to debate, persuade and influence with your communication skills



Interview questions and answers


Code Reading


Have you ever been surprised after the, what you presumed was a successful job interview, that you weren’t offered the desire position?


In the job interview it is easy to get caught up in ourselves, especially as our energy is spent finding examples to the interview question. It is this internal focus that creates only one perspective.


Code readers, on the other hand, have the ability to focus on their audience, responding to little cues and tells. People give away so much when you know what to look for. As we said in the 73 rules for influencing the interview, once you understand what simple gestures, body language and the words people use, you can use these “tells” to change your story to influence and manipulate what the employer thinks about you.
