“Focus on Value for Robust Referrals and Better Job Interviews”

How do you get a robust referral for a job interview when you don’t know anyone connected to the decision maker? And, what’s going to convince the hiring manager to give you the job?

To get the referral, what if you understand what’s important to that connector and can offer something of value to him or her? Instead of a rejection or a simple one-off meeting, you can create the foundation to gain valuable information, build a partnership, and gain a strong referral. And what about if in the job interview you demonstrate how you can not only do the job, but also help the decision maker achieve his or her aspirations beyond the job description? You’ll standout from other candidates.

This session will focus on understanding what’s valuable to the other person—be it an informational or job interview—and what to do about it. We will discuss how to figure out what interests connectors and decision makers have and how to bring them into the discussion. We will also look at your own interests and how to get them met. This workshop will change the frame of both informational and job interviews to how you and connectors can work together, and how you can focus on meeting the broader aspirations of decision makers.
