Please see full event listing for date.

jobsCareer coach Melanie Szlucha of Red Inc. teaches effective techniques for excelling in interviews. Many times candidates feel like they don't have anything to say in a job interview, or are overwhelmed by looking at a shopping list of questions they might be asked. It can be difficult to understand how experiences that seem insignificant to them can really be crucial to an employer's hiring decision, and then how to concisely structure answers to those questions. Participants will learn to make a better impression on an employer by being prepared with topics to discuss.

This talk also covers the finer points of an interview such as establishing rapport, avoiding the Walk of Silence from the receptionist desk to the interview, negotiating the offer, and preparing for the 5 questions ALWAYS asked.
