KB Trainers (Knowledge-Based Trainers) arranged a training session for students titled “The Interview Masterclass” at Molana Zafar Ali Khan Trust. The training was conducted by certified trainers including Fareed Qureshi, a certified trainer and PhD Scholar from LUMS and Madiha Hanan, corporate and academic certified trainer.
Both trainers used a hands-on and interactive approach to teach major 28 skills required to ace interviews, break the common interview myths, personality development and much more. The training was aimed at teaching students the much-needed skills including preparation, making an entrance, building and establishing, troubleshooting and closing.
Talking about the training one of the trainers Madiha Hanan observed that it was common that students who performed considerably well in their studies failed in job interviews rejected, being rejected due to fear, lack of confidence and lack of training. She said this training will equip students to handle the pressures of the interview and interviewer as well.
Fareed Qureshi demanded the government to include interview training and skills as a course in the university curriculum. He said university graduates were not aware of the interview skills needed to secure a job in the marketplace, therefore the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and universities must include a course in the curriculum. “This will not only benefit students but the employers, as well as they, will get trained workforce,” he added.
The event was proudly sponsored by McDonald’s, Shakarganj Food Pvt Ltd, Vital Tea, Kanwara Bechara and HUB Solutions Pakistan.
