How To Interview So They Hire You

August 20, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm PDT

Session 4 of WiBD Communication and Career Growth Skills Program 2020


Join us as we continue our series on career growth, this month focusing on how to prepare and conduct an interview that proves you are the best candidate for a desired position. Good interviewing is based on your research for the job and company, and your practice of speaking your brand and success stories confidently…even when you are nervous! Knowing your stress triggers, and how to calm down, is key. Being in the room, or on screen, with the interviewer, not just in your own head, helps you connect in a memorable way. We’ll review typical questions and responses so that you’ll be ready to answer even the most unexpected queries in the moment, always leading to a strength that you bring, based on their need rather than just your interest. Even introverts can excel at this!
