If you’re considering studying an online course with MCI Institute, but have a few questions about what the MCI experience entails, you’re in luck. We’ve answered some of the questions prospective students frequently ask us, see below:
STEP 1: Don’t apply to every job.

An interview is an intense and artificial way of measuring whether you will be a good fit for a role. Until another method is developed, it is important to learn how to play this game. My first interview was secured through a friend who had an office suite on the same floor as an Accountant. The interview lasted about half an hour. Part of the interview included the Accountant asking me to write a sentence so he could determine how legible my handwriting was. How interviews have changed!
