Harvard grad develops new kind of course

New course aims to teach students how to interview

interview-harvard-courseAccording to a new press release, a Harvard Business School student has created a new corporation that offers targeted courses for students eager to get hired.

“More young people have prioritized higher education, leading to rampant growth in the applicant pool for colleges and graduate programs,” says the release. “There has also been a growing number of applicants for a limited number of openings throughout the business community. This increased competition has made interview skills more important than ever, however, there are few resources available to prospective students and professionals.”

In order to meet this growing need, Harvard Business School student Philip Blackett has established Magnetic Interviewing, LLC, which offers young people the tools necessary to help them win over admissions officers and corporate recruiters in an interview.

Blackett has supposedly developed these “proven techniques” through his own experiences in higher education and the “upper tiers of the corporate world,” as well as from other industry experts.

The course includes anecdotal talks, classroom instruction, person-to-person interactions and mock interviews.

Blackett hopes to expand Magnetic Interviewing, LLC so that more students can benefit from his wisdom, says the release, eventually hoping to reach 12,000 students and young professionals over the coming years and “vastly improve their chances at attaining a position in the school or company of their dreams.”

Blackett is hoping to increase the company’s visibility and reach to new consumers, which requires assistance from supporters who share his enthusiasm.

To help grow the company, Philip has begun a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo in partnership with UP Global. Financial supporters may receive a variety of perks including T-shirts, strategy guides, videos, mock interviews, and sponsored courses.  To learn more about Magnetic Interviewing, LLC and to make a financial contribution, visit
