Upcoming Talk: 'Win That Interview!' Nov 6, 2016 - San Francisco

How do you prepare for, and communicate successfully, during that all important job interview?  I'll be talking on this very topic at the San Francisco Main Public Library on Sunday November 6. The talk is open to the public and will be from 2pm to 4pm. 

Interviewing is a piece of skilled behavior that is quite separate from how well qualified you are for the job itself. And all too often people work hard at producing a great curriculum vitae and cover letter but then fall short when it comes to nailing the interview. Psychology teaches us a lot about effective communication, which is crucial when interviewing. Informed by my own experience of working in communications for over 20 years as well as by psychological research, my talk will cover the basics of successful interviewing. Areas covered will include: 

  • how to present yourself well, communicate clearly, and answer tough questions without getting stressed
  • the three stages of an interview and what to do in each one
  • how to manage interview nerves
  • the Do's and Don't's of interviewing
