Interview Academy was developed in South Australia by Husband & Wife Team, Brett & Lubinka Gillett.
As a previous business owner, mentor and a current senior manager in sports administration with the South Australian National Football League, Brett has literally interviewed hundreds of candidates for various positions over many years.
Brett has had the pleasure of interviewing and employing some outstanding candidates, however, has also seen some of the best candidates crash and burn under the pressure of an interview. Brett has seen firsthand qualified candidates and people new to the work force miss opportunities either due to poor interviewing skills, nerves or a lack of understanding of the process.
Brett & Lubinka have made it their mission to put an end to "interview trauma" by developing a workshop that takes participants step by step through the process and complexity of a job interview.
Lubinka is an Experienced HR Manager with a demonstrated history of working in both the government and private sector. Skilled in Human Resources, Management, Organisational Development, Induction and Training. Lubinka has also had significant experience with the interview process and recognises the need for education in this space. Lubinka combines her very valuable professional knowledge and training experience throughout the development and delivery of our workshop.
“Opportunities are limited in a diminishing job market”, says Brett, “our children need all the support they can get to put their best foot forward. “Every opportunity starts with a job Interview, and whilst an interview will throw up something different each time, the principles remain the same. Our focus is on developing and understanding these principals”.
“Lubinka and I recgonised the shortfall in this learning area after our own children graduated from high school and commenced looking for part time work, whilst also commencing University. Our Kids are great humans, smart with engaging personalities, however both really struggled with their initial couple of job interviews. Admitting at the time they felt under prepared, nervous, unfamiliar with the process, and were clearly disappointed with their initial outcomes. We are pleased that both our children have now moved into their chosen careers. They are two of the greatest advocates of Interview Academy says Brett ”
