LinkedIn is the first place a recruiter will go to check you out. Having a strong profile can be the difference in whether you make the cut.

VIDEO MOCK INTERVIEWING
Convert opportunities into offers.
Interviews are your chance to show that you have the skills, passion and interest to be successful in the position. Looking great on paper is only the first step. You have to nail the interview, often several interviews, to get the offer.
This package of services includes a 45-minute videotaped mock interview, along with both oral and written review of your performance and a copy of your video. I will provide detailed feedback on everything from body language, speech patterns, strength of your responses and performance improvement tips.

We will also work on informational interviewing, understanding the nuances of an informational interview and how to prepare your list of questions. Additional email support included.
