The Best Candidate Wins

How to pitch your core value, respond to interview questions with professional proof and negotiate your package

The Best Candidate Wins is the ideal program for you if you want to build your confidence and firm up your interview response skills.

A job interview is one of the most intimidating ways of making a first impression. Learning how to successfully respond to job interview questions requires clarity about the job and the value you bring to the position.

It takes so much hard work to get an interview, and the reality is that when you sit in front of the interviewer, you often do not come across as well as you could because you lack a response strategy and are not able to link your skills to actual examples that show you are the best fit for the position.

If you want to come across with genuine presence, have a sense of calm and make an impact in your interview, the tools and skills you will learn on this program will not only prepare you for your interview, but also help you for the rest of your career.

The principles and practices can easily be applied to interviews for academic positions. This program is currently run at UBC for post docs and is now being made available to you, irrespective of your work experience or educational background.

Who is this program for?

The Best Candidate Wins will really help if you:

  • Are in transition between jobs
  • Have decided to make a career change
  • Have been laid off
  • Have recently graduated
  • Want to get back into the market after a long absence


The feedback from The Best Candidate Wins was absolutely outstanding. This was an excellent session and we will definitely run the program again.

I took “The Best Candidate Wins” session last year at UBC as a postdoc. I wanted to give you the good news that I got my first industry job! I had no experience of how an interview would be as this was the first job I applied for. All I knew was from your instructions – and I was successful. I wanted to thank you very much for everything.
