While job interviews can be somewhat intimidating, there are things you can do – and say – to quickly improve the way you are perceived as a candidate, no matter what the position. This LINKS session will help you to develop a list of intelligent questions, to use compelling communication methods, and to be viewed as the person a company or organization should hire.
Facilitated by Robyn Winters, Career Strategist
WHAT IS LINKS: LINKS is an acronym for Leads, Information, Networking, Know-how, and Strategies. It is an educational and motivational program designed to help candidates prepare for the week ahead and to share conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, welcoming environment. For the unemployed professional, LINKS is a “place to go” to focus on the job search when others go to work on Monday Mornings. LINKS sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
