The Job Interview
- leaving positive impressions (verbal & non verbal)
- proper protocol (the before, during & after)
- inner confidence
- the dos and don’ts of being a good conversationalist
- the critical importance of a bright and engaged expression
You can’t afford to present yourself as anything but your very best. Most however are unaware of the habits that cause them to leave poor impressions; they don’t realize that in the professional world you need to bump it up and exude an air of warmth, confidence and authority with an ability to thoughtfully listen while thinking and speaking improvisationally.
Through an interactive discussion of best practices, drills, role playing as well as homework, this program breaks down what are often deeply ingrained bad habits. Participants practice in-class and on their own, doing various exercises to develop poise, polish and confidence. Role play exercises are video recorded so students can see how they look and sound. Sessions also cover the before-interview research and preparation and the post interview follow-up.
In the program job seekers see how they can replace the awkwardness, anxiety and insecurity they can feel in promoting themselves with an understanding of how to confidently and effectively present themselves.
They will learn how to articulate their individual differentiators, past business successes and desirable personal traits and develop several compelling narratives that would impress a recruiter. They are challenged to come up with strong answers to real life interview questions.
Participants come away equipped to leave strong positive impressions that will make them stand out and offset any shortcomings they may have in their resume.
Instructor can work one-on-one with those who wish personal attention. The program can also be presented before a group of an optimal size of around a dozen people.
Depending on scope, the program consists of three to six one-hour weekly sessions.
