Job interviewing is a difficult, yet often necessary, hurtle to jump over on your way to landing your dream job. Understanding the interview process, avoiding mistakes, identifying what attributes the employers are looking for in a successful candidate, and being able to articulate your fit for a position will allow you to stand out from the crowd and increase your chances of getting your desired job.
This workshop is designed to improve your interviewing skills to ensure that potential employers understand all that you have to offer. Through a series of exercises, activities, mock interviews, and peer reviews, you will be coached in the practical tools necessary to successfully communicate your unique package of strengths, skills and experiences dynamically, professionally, and persuasively in order to land your dream job.
During this workshop, you will learn how to:
