Thursday, Oct 18, 2018 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

If you managed to score an interview, chances are the recruiter and hiring manager saw something special in your resume and want you to wow them. How do you use your in-person powers of persuasion to convince the hiring manager that you can do the job and do it well? How do you show your true self, your skills and aptitudes in the best light? How do you insure that you give the interviewer the most complete and accurate impression of your strengths? How do you self-promote in a convincing manner? During this session, Melanie Myers, Director of Organization and Management at The Westport Library, and Ellen Janpol, Business Librarian, will demonstrate how to effectively present your skills (both hard and soft) to the interviewer and convince them that you have the very skills needed for the job.
