"Identifying Employers' Pain Points and Opportunities, and Using Them to Nail Interviews"

There is only one reason why employers hire people: they have problems or opportunities that can’t be handled by their existing staff.  Job descriptions only rarely allude to the problems and the resulting pain, and often just obliquely mention opportunities.

But what if you can identify a company’s pain points and use that information in your interviews and in key networking conversations?  You’d be seen not only as a very interested candidate who has done valuable homework, but there’s more:

If you can show your counterpart how you can help solve the problems, ease the pain, or capitalize on the opportunities, you’ve leapfrogged your competition.

At June 20th’s WIND North Meeting Fred Nothnagel will share several key sources of information to give you hints about pain points and opportunities. Then each attendee will think about how they might use some actual news to show interviewers and other key people that they can play a key role in helping the organization.

Fred will also share the techniques involved and give everyone a handout with the techniques spelled out. As always, questions and discussion are encouraged.

So come to WIND North on the 20th and learn to “use the news for clues” and beat your competition.
