Event Details

Competition for jobs is stiff. It's a lot of time and emotional investment to study the ads, customize your resume for the job and make sure it has the appropriate keywords, adjust your cover letter and often deal with the uploading process as well.  Then you wait and wonder while time goes by. 

If you're invited in for an interview, you have one shot to tell them why you're the one to hire.  Blow it, and you’re gone from the process. All that work for nothing.  Dejection and dispair pile up.  Or just as bad, you get the job, but it turns out to be a nightmare working there, and you think "I wish I'd known how to find out these things on the interview."

First interviews are for selling yourself, asking questions about the job and the company, qualifying their answers and yours, and making sure communication is drilled down to the essence of things. 

Some of what you'll come away knowing how to do:

  • Ensure the right of rejection is yours, not theirs
  • Find out the real scoop about the company and job and sell yourself concurrently.
  • Recognize, neutralize and nail any "trick" questions
  • Spot a company or job you should to walk away from
  • And how to do just that - in the middle of the interview

It's a lot to learn.  Some of it will make sense and some won't.  But as soon as you start to put some of these principles in place, you'll see an immediate difference in the quality of your interviews and in the respect you receive from your interviewer.

BIO: Judi Perkins, the How-To Job Coach, was a recruiter for 22 years, consulting with hundreds of hiring authorities throughout the hiring process.  She also worked closely with the candidates who were equally important to the equation, which means she knows intimately how both sides think.  When most coaches can only tell you "what" to do, she tells you  "how, why, and why not."   She’s been quoted frequently in numerous articles for CareerBuilder, MSN Careers, Yahoo Hot Jobs and the New York Times, among others, as well as featured as an expert in numerous career books.
