With the job market becoming ever more competitive, candidates need to do whatever they can to secure an all-important edge. You can get someone to help with the application process, but what about the interview itself? Certainly there are plenty of books available on interview technique, but there’s no substitute for practice.
If you have experience of interviewing people, it seems there’ an opportunity to set up a service providing mock interviews. In fact you needn’t necessarily have the interview experience yourself. You could act as a co-ordinator – subcontracting the interviewing to specialists in the fields in which candidates are seeking work. So for example, you could recruit a panel of interviewers from the fields of accountancy, law, sales, marketing, engineering, retail etc who would be paid a fee to put your customers through a mock interview.
This is a service which could be set up without a great deal of outlay, and with minimal space requirements. All you’d need is a small office.
