Why the Most Qualified Candidate Doesn't Always Get the Job!
The job interview is one of the most crucial elements of a job search. Yet, even with a combination of solid experience and relevant skills, the most qualified candidates may not secure the position they interviewed for and may be unaware of the reasons that they’re not selected. In this session, learn why even highly qualified candidates are not always successful at landing the job they want – or think they should have gotten.
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.
