In an interview situation, some people will thrive while others nose-dive. Nerve-racking and intensely private, it's no wonder job interviews have traditionally taken place behind closed doors - until now.
In a brand new series, The Job Interview takes an inside look at the world where the words you say, the clothes you wear, even the expression on your face can mean the difference between success and failure.
A humble UK office block is a portal into another world of self-respect, financial independence and limitless opportunities, because behind the closed doors of its interview rooms, lives are about to change.
Real job seekers from across the country do battle with real employers to secure their perfect job. We follow the attempts, experiences and stories of a selection of candidates and interviewers as they try to give their best performances.
They say it takes just 10 seconds for an interviewer to make up their mind. These interviewees are hoping to get longer then that to prove their worth.
All that stands between these hopefuls and the job of their dreams is… themselves!
The Job Interview - tonight, 8.30, TVNZ 1. Captions and audio description available.
