The challenge in today’s marketplace is that there is no standard set of questions. Yes, there are some typical questions. But, that’s a short list. Here's why — many interviewers were never taught how to conduct interviews properly and they don’t practice often enough to interview effectively. That means memorizing answers to a lot of questions probably isn’t the most effective way of preparing for an interview. You have to think on your feet.
CARB gives you a powerful boost.
We help you think on your feet by teaching you the powerful “CARB formula”. CARB helps you make a positive impression on interviewers by responding to questions in a story format that clearly demonstrates how you can benefit the hiring organization. Through one-on-one practice sessions and detailed feedback you’ll learn how CARB can help you answer almost any question — including behavioral interviewing questions — easily, effortless and impressively. With practice, CARB will become your natural approach to any interview situation.
