…the workshop exceeded my every expectation by a million miles.

JTT interview prep classes were a must attend… they really breakdown the daunting MMI into manageable sections, with a focus on maintaining individuality…

I was blown away right off the bat. No fluff, straight to the point, very content-dense.

The very first time Justin spoke and introduced about the interview workshop series at the $2 donation workshop, I knew that he knew what he was doing. His clear, direct and efficient $2 workshop made me attend it two times in a row without any hesitation. Throughout the two days of the $2 workshop, my faith and anticipation for the workshop series grew. Yet even when I was applying for it, I didn’t fully know the extent to which it would impact on not only preparing for my interview but also just to discover more about myself as a person…

The interview workshop was an incomparable opportunity to expand on the key interview concepts and practice on our weaknesses as well as improving our strengths. Almost everything Justin told us and from every activity we did, I could write down something new that I had learnt from it. The workshop involved activities and discussions that were challenging as we had to think about diverse health-related situations and perspectives in a wider and more critical way. During and even after the interview workshop I had and still am having the invaluable experience of pushing myself out of my comfort zone to discover my deeper self in a way that I otherwise may not have been able to. As much as it was challenging, it was enjoyable and incredibly helpful to also listen to others’ responses to interview practice questions because it was a chance to understand another valid perspective which challenged or sometimes even consolidated my personal views and reasons. More importantly, Justin’s advice and tips are still resonating as I practice as he has taught me to teach myself.

I have gained so much more than I ever expected, and I feel that all I am missing now is simply practicing more on the steps that have been taught and built there already.

If this series of workshops isn’t an efficient and amazing guide for the interview, I honestly don’t know what is!

Just go to the interview workshop. You’re not going to regret it. We all want to crush the interviews but our high expectations to perform well often means we wait until the last minute to practice. At the workshop you’ll be constantly pushed slightly out of your comfort zone so that you don’t plateau. After only a few hours you’ll be a different person. And it won’t be by memorising a bunch of complex answer schemes or useless dribble. No, next time your grandmother asks you why you want to be a health care professional or when a mugger corners you and asks you about your stance on euthanasia you’ll ace that question because you’ll be better at human interactions in general.
Justin was great at really putting our minds at ease about the daunting aspect of the MMI. His advice is always straight to the point, and his methods of approaching each section are efficient. I also found the hands on practice and feedback really useful, it really helped to build my confidence and prepare me for what the real thing will be like. I highly recommend these work shops, they give you a better understanding of where to direct your practice, and what the interviewer is really looking for.
Attending Justin’s MMI workshop series was a very worthwhile and beneficial experience for me. Not only does he offer a fresh approach to the interview with a variety of guidelines, but he really encourages a heightened sense of conscience of ones inner self. The workshop exercises provoke deeper understanding of ones psyche through exploring the experiences and underlying morals/values, which is extremely relevant when it comes to crafting an interview answer that is both genuine and a true reflection of who you are. It was definitely a confidence booster-with plenty of practising sessions to put the theory into action and at the end of the day it left me smiling because I know exactly where I my weaknesses lie and what I must do to improve. Thus Recommend.
