Interview Like Yourself...No, Really! Follow Your Strengths and Skills
Presented by: Jezra Kaye
You can’t ignore a professional speechwriter who gets paid huge bucks to give advice to executives about how to make the best impression in front of board members, the press and investors. Jezra Kaye has distilled decades of experience and advice into on effective presentations in this presentation based on her book. Research by Babich Associates suggests it takes 11 interviews to get a job. Imagine if you could cut that down to 5. Not only would you get a job faster (and end up with more dough) but you will definite keep your confidence and cool!
Jezra will share with you how to keep your cool while you are in the “hot seat”, and being interviewed by individuals or groups. She will share how to master the fine art of not only anticipating questions, but stopping to make sure you heard the question correctly so you can instantly develop a cogent response.
She will also share how to connect who you are to what you have done, to make hiring managers confident that – YOU are the right choice.
