In this package, you’ll learn how to create and leverage your own custom job search network, understand the role of informational interviews, how to prepare for them and what questions to ask. You’ll also learn how to ask for, and get, interviews with connections that you might have overlooked.

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 two 45 minute videotaped mock interviews, along with review of your performance. I will provide detailed feedback on everything from body language, speech patterns, strength of your responses and performance improvement tips. On round two, we’ll see how well you incorporated what you learned in round one. You’ll get a list of key interview questions for your field(s) of interest, advice on how to respond while staying true to you and your experience. 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.
