GETTING THE JOB:
DEVELOPING A GREAT INTERVIEW STRATEGY
WEBINAR WITH MICHAEL MITCHELL, MAT
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2019
Bad News: Interviews are an inescapable and challenging fact of professional life.
Good News: Any job applicant can learn to develop a strategic interview plan, which uses specific and effective skills to get the job offer.
In today’s child and youth care (CYC) environment, funding, political events or other dynamic changes can find CYC professionals out on the street looking for their next position, with little or no advance notice. Conversely, what if you were offered a promotion, or advancement opportunity, with another employer? Would you be prepared on short notice? In competing with dozens of other applicants, would you nail the interview and land that all-important job offer?
Having a well-organized and rehearsed strategic interview plan can help any job applicant not only master basic interview requirements, but turn its challenges into opportunities.
So why not be prepared now? Preparing today can bring so much peace-of-mind later, just when you need it most. This is a very “real-world” training, which everyone can use, regardless of your organizational position or community-of-care.
In this webinar, participants will:
- Identify what an employer might specifically ask of a job applicant
- Use a concise and accurate one-page professional resume as preparation for the interview
- Categorize their skills to match specific employer requirements
- Know how to trouble-shoot some of the more common interview challenges
- Recognize the value of appropriate interview attire and behaviors
- Identify how an employer’s job description is the key to the interview
- Know the strategic use of psychological preparation for interviews
- Know how to adapt to different interview formats
- Develop mandatory questions to ask the employer in the interview
- How to appropriately respond to a job offer or rejection
- Know why interview follow-up is critical to getting the job offergardless of their CYC specialty or organizational position.
