Event Details

Have you ever walked out of an interview thinking it went well, but then you didn't get the job? Or felt a great conversation come to a halt as soon as you answered their salary question? Perhaps in one interview you felt a bit too nervous, or you simply want to polish up your interviewing skills. If any of these are true for you, then you'll want to attend this webinar. Robert Hellmann of www.hellmannconsulting.com will share field-tested strategies and techniques (and dispel myths) that will boost your likelihood of acing the interview. We'll cover:

  • A strategic approach involving "story-telling" that will put you ahead of the competition.
  • How to handle salary questions and other questions you're likely to hear.
  • What to do when they ask you about your weaknesses.
  • The three things companies look for in a candidate, and how to prepare.
  • The three questions you must ask to ensure the interview's success.
  • How to turn a "No" into a "Yes"

 

The event will be a 45 minute presentation, followed by audience Q&A before we break out into smaller networking groups to meet new people and practice our 30 second networking pitch.

Here are some best practices to prepare your 30 second pitch:

1. Know exactly what you want to achieve. This should be your positioning statement. Who are you? What do you do? Where do you want to go? What are you looking for?

2. Key bullets should include your work history, background, skills, accomplishments, and goals.

3. Tell a story, so others remember you.

4. No jargon.

5. Invite conversation if you can.

6. Memorize it.

7. Time yourself to stick to 30 seconds.

8. Record yourself on video and try it on friends and colleagues for feedback.
