Acing the Interview
Every job seeker knows that the MOST stressful part of a job search is the interview. How many times have you left the interview feeling that you did a great job, only to find out that the job was offered to another candidate? Or worse, how many times have you said something in an interview that you wish you hadn’t said? You second-guess yourself right up to the moment of the next interview…making the same mistakes all over again. What if you walked into an interview today and saw a panel of six executives sitting in front of you? Would your brain be saying, “bring it on!” or would your eyes be darting for the exits?
Lauren’s presentation will help prepare you for even the toughest interview scenarios. Her clients have actually said they can’t wait for their next interview! Lauren will show you how to prepare for an interview, how to keep focused during the interview and how to properly follow-up after the interview. She’ll cover the psychology behind certain questions and how to stay on track, no matter how much an interviewer tries to throw you off your game. Behavioral Interview techniques will also be thoroughly examined, which is a method that most employers are now implementing into their recruiting process. This two-hour session will give you tools you need to ace any interview until the day you retire.
