Monday Morning LINKS

30th March, 2020 - 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM: To Be Rescheduled

Ace Your Telephone, Skype, and Online Interviews

Currently, the usual methods of conducting screening interviews are by phone, by video, or online. Why? Because they are simple, efficient, and less expensive ways for a recruiter or hiring company to screen you “in” or “out.” In fact, these types of interviews are just as important as a job interview, because they can determine whether you get to the next step in the interview process. If you’re looking for a job, you should (1) anticipate one of these types of interviews and (2) prepare for them. One avoidable error is to come across as unprepared – or worse – uninterested. In this session, you’ll discover ways to make a positive impression to be invited in for a face-to-face interview.

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, friendly 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.

Facilitated by a TBJL Career Strategist.

Supported by the Vinik Family Foundation, Jeff and Penny Vinik, Trustees and the SunTrust Foundation
