Andre Thornton - CEO - Whitman Consulting

 

Learning Objective: Examine and practice the skillset of delivering a great interview

Job interviews are stressful enough without having to establish a positive and professional self-representation during the interview process. Recruiters are looking for the ideal candidate, and you are trying to come across as friendly and trustworthy while explaining how you’re the perfect candidate, so practice makes perfect. The competition is tough, so it’s no wonder your confidence should be your focus. That’s why you need to be at this seminar. We will deliver practical, step-by-step, proven strategies and interview tips to help you build confidence, become persuasive, and walk into a room locked and loaded, ready to formulate impressive answers to common interview questions. Along with the answers and swagger to pull it off, we will give you the opportunity to perfect your skills before your interview.

This session will begin with the knowledge of how to impress recruiters, while the second half will pull it all together in the practice mock interview sessions. Remember, practice makes perfect. You will have the opportunity to sit face to face with professional interviewers in order to prepare effectively for your real interviews.

At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to answer these questions:

  1. What are the common interview questions, and how do I prepare my answers?
  2. What information do I need to know for every interview?
  3. How do I answer difficult questions?
  4. What are good questions to ask my interviewer?
  5. How do I answer, “So tell me about yourself’?
  6. What do I do after the interview?
  7. What are common interview mistakes?
  8. What does my body language say about me?
  9. What information do I need to know before I have my interview?
  10. How can I ace my interview from beginning to end?
  11. What can I do after the interview to gain an edge on the competition?

What does the future look like for women veterans in the 21st century? This session will address how women veterans can position themselves for leadership success.
