Don’t “Wing It”: Insight for Amazing Interviews Part 2

When: December 9th, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 11:15 AM
Where: Held Virtually via Zoom - *No Zoom Account Required, Webinar

In part 2 of the interview webinar series we’ll dig into some of the hardest to answer questions you’ll receive during most conversations with a prospective employer. How should you respond when an employer says, “Tell me about yourself”? What if you get the dreaded “weakness” question? What is the best way to answer a behavioural question? After the webinar is complete, you’ll know how to tell a STAR story, use the “Sandwich Method”, and use the acronym CAPE to start your interview the right way. By the end you’ll have some tested and effective strategies and techniques for answering interview questions so that you don’t have to wing it! Take the time now to invest in and prepare for your upcoming interviews so that you give yourself an even greater chance to impress the employer and get the job.
