Your resume is only a temporary ticket in the door, the interview is the performance that lands you an offer! When it comes to interviewing, "winging it" is not an option. For most, success comes through strategy, preparation, practice, skill development, and more practice and refinement. In this workshop, we’ll highlight our top 20 tips for easing anxieties before an interview, where you should spend your time in effectively preparing, and delivering an interviewing “performance” that separates you from other applicants and leaves a lasting positive impression on your interviewer/s! We’ll share how to create and communicate your “professional elevator pitch,” how to showcase your interest, addressing skills gaps, establishing rapport, handling difficult questions and avoiding the common pitfalls. You will walk away better positioned to showcase your talents and land the offer!

What is your biggest challenge/struggle, question, etc. when it comes to interviewing?
How do I begin to write a "professional marketing product" (i.e. your resume) that will be seen, capture the attention of my "target audience" (i.e. Recruiter, hiring Manager, HR Rep, etc.), and communicate my skills and background effectively?  There are numerous stressors and hurdles when crafting this very important product, but a helpful first step is understanding those hurdles and identifying a strategy for overcoming!  In this virtual resume workshop, we'll discuss 5 major "resume truths" that exist today and how to address and overcome each to ensure your resume 1.) gets seen, 2.) captures attention and engages the resume reviewer, 3.) is easily digested by a non-technical audience/reviewer, 4.) communicates your impact, and 5.) aligns with a quality LinkedIn or GitHub profile, which is another very important "professional marketing material.”
