Interviewing 101: Acing the Subject They Don’t Teach in College

December 26, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Looking for a summer job–or preparing to start your career? Mastering the art of interviewing is key to getting hired. This interactive, four-hour Job-Seekers BootCamp will provide you with a host of valuable takeaways to help you ace your next job interview:

  • Resume/Cover letter-writing tips
  • Basic interview skills
  • How to prepare for an interview–and combat nerves
  • Interview dos and don’ts
  • The art of body language
  • How to make a good first impression
  • What the interviewer is looking for
  • Experience answering a broad range of questions (including the dreaded “Tell Me About Yourself” and “What’s Your Greatest Weakness?”)
  • Real-time, immediate feedback and coaching
  • Tips on creating your “elevator pitch”
  • Greater confidence

This workshop will include group discussions and role-playing various interview scenarios–including the chance to participate in a mock interview and practice your new-found skills in a group setting. Prior to the workshop, you’ll complete a questionnaire and provide us with your resume, a sample cover letter, and job/internship description(s).

Cost to attend: $250.00.

Pizza, snacks, and drinks will be provided. Non-refundable pre-payment required two days prior to the workshop. For more information, please contact Meryl Kanner at 862-704-2233 or click here.

POST-WORKSHOP OPTION: A one-hour, individual, videotaped mock interview–$175.00 for workshop participants, $350.00 for all others
