JOBS 2018: Ending Sweaty Palms and Awkward Answers—a Better Way of Preparing for Job Interviews
Many times candidates feel like they don't have anything to say in a job interview, or are overwhelmed by looking at a shopping list of questions they might be asked. It can be difficult to understand how experiences that seem insignificant to you can be crucial to an employer's hiring decision.
Melanie Szlucha developed the TODAY acronym to help candidates focus their preparation on specific examples from their career and volunteer work which align with the needs of the employer. This presentation also covers the finer points of an interview such as establishing rapport, avoiding the Walk of Silence from the reception desk to the interview, negotiating the offer, and preparing for the five questions that will always be asked.
Presenter: Melanie Szlucha is a career coach at Red, Inc. As a hiring manager, Melanie was always wondering if she was really hiring the best person for the job by selecting the candidate with the best resume and job interview skills. Her goal in starting her business was to transform resumes and teach better job interview preparation so that companies are able to quickly understand a candidate’s value, and to help great candidates get the jobs they deserve.Status: Closed
