Informational Interviews Can Lead to Job Offers


Date: Tuesday, April 14th

Time:
 2:00 pm EST (11:00 am PST, 12:00 pm MST, 1:00 pm CST)

Description:
 Your job as a job seeker is to schedule as many interviews as possible. I often compare a job search to “dating.” If you don’t date, you won’t get married. If you don’t schedule interviews, you won’t get a job offer. If you’ve not been successful scheduling job interviews, it’s wise to schedule informational interviews which can lead to job offers if conducting properly. During this session, we will discuss the following:

  • What could be sabotaging your job search efforts
  • The who, what, when, where and why of informational interviews
  • Why information interviews can differentiate you from your competition

Set a goal today, to schedule at least one informational interview every week, and watch the momentum that builds in your job search!

Is your Self Talk Helping Or Hurting Your Job Search?

Description: We all talk to ourselves and that’s okay; but what are you saying? Too often our self-talk is more prevalent when we don’t like what we’ve just said or done! The reality is whether you think you CAN do something or think you CAN’T – you’re 100% right! That’s why your self-talk will either help or hinder your job search, the choice is yours! During this session, we will discuss the following four areas:

  1. Your self-esteem cycle
  2. A self-talk assessment
  3. Self-esteem evaluation
  4. How to improve your self-talk and your RESULTS!

Bottom line: When you talk to yourself – say NICE things. This session will help you improve the results you will enjoy in your job search.
