Are you ready for that interview?

Preparing for interview can be daunting.  Tomorrow evening’s workshop is an opportunity to learn a simple structure that will increase your clarity and confidence as you prepare for interview.  Bring along your CV and, if possible, a job description.

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves.  Check out this great talk on getting your body language right so that you can ‘fake it ’til you become it’.  http://bit.ly/VjrPRu

Are you ready for that Interview? Evening Workshop

Did you know that employers only want to know 3 things?

  • Can you do the job?
  • Will you do the job?
  • Will you fit in?

To be successful at interview, you must be able to tell the interviewer a story – the story of your Achievements.  And, this story must relate to the job description.

By the end of this evening workshop you will:

  • Learn a structure to prepare for interview
  • Be able to tell the story of your Achievements
  • Answer interview questions from the employer’s perspective
  • Have increased clarity and confidence

This is the final workshop in this series of Career Workshops.  Please pass it on.

Does Your CV need a Makeover?

The sole objective of a CV is to win you an interview.  If your CV is not being noticed, maybe it’s time for a Makeover.

This evening, you will learn to unearth, capture and present nuggets of knowledge, skills or achievements that you may have overlooked or failed to communicate powerfully in your CV.  By the end of the evening, you will be well on the way to having an impactful achievements-based CV.  You are welcome to bring your laptop.

Please pass it on!

A very enjoyable evening at Skills workshop

There was a great buzz at the Do You Know Your Skills? Workshop last night as people brainstormed each other’s potential careers based on the skills that they love using.

There was also lots and lots of chatting over tea afterwards which is a good sign and it brought a smile to my face :).

Next evening workshops in series of 4:

7 May – Does Your CV need a Makeover?
4 June – Are you ready for the Interview?

Your Career – Do You Know Your Skills?

The next evening Career workshop ‘Do You Know Your Skills?’ is on Tuesday evening.  At the end of the evening you will have:

  • Identified your work skills under such headings as practical, interpersonal, data etc.
  • Identified the skills you wish to use and those that you might wish to park for a while
  • Clarified which skills require more training, education or experience
  • Brainstormed career areas that suit your skills
  • And, if there is time, we will take a peak at your Interests and Value

How can we move on until we know where we are now?  This is your chance.  Pass it on!
