Career coach Melanie Szlucha, owner of RED inc, LLC, 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.
Melanie developed the TODAY acronym as a way for candidates to focus their preparation, and remember those experiences that will help them be seen as the ideal candidate for the job. This talk also covers the finer points of an interview, such as establishing rapport, negotiating the offers and preparing for the 5 questions they will always be asked. In her business, Melanie provides job interview coaching, resume writing, and job coaching to people in transition or those just looking for a change. Prior to starting her own business, she had over 20+ years experience as a hiring manager. She also knows what it's like to be on the other side of the desk through her own personal job searching experience.
