Presentation

"Practice Success Stories to Ace Your Interviews"

What sets apart two candidates with equivalent backgrounds and skills?
Clear, Concise and Compelling examples from your work that prove you have the skills, talents and motivation to be an excellent contributor.
At WIND South on June 20, we will focus on telling such stories in interviews.  After Fred Nothnagel gives a brief introduction to the basics of  selecting and tailoring success stories to use in specific interviews, each attendee will have the opportunity to tell one of their stories to the group, or a subset thereof, depending on attendance.  You will receive both verbal and written feedback from the group and from him.
To prepare,
– bring 6 copies of a job description that has interested you, regardless of whether you applied for it or how old it is
– practice telling a story about an accomplishment, that you believe you’d use interviewing for that job (hint: choose a key requirement or responsibility and focus your story on showing you’ve got that one very, very well covered).
Come join us at WIND South on the 20th and get to the top of the short list.
