You Have the Interview. Now What?

Who is presenting? 

Jennifer Vessels, CEO, Next Step

Event Overview:
After identifying your career path and characteristics of ideal ‘next opportunity’ in Silicon Valley, you received a call back from a recruiter or company executive. Based on your compelling description of what you will bring to the organization, you have an interview scheduled. Now its time to plan your approach and ways you will ensure the interview leads to the next steps necessary to support your career growth.

Participants of this highly interactive session will gain insight into the perspectives, attitudes and process of Silicon Valley employers and recruiters during the interview process. They will learn and have an opportunity to practice techniques to demonstrate their unique value to the hiring company during and after the interview. Most importantly, all will leave with an action plan to put these approaches in place for themselves after the workshop.

At the end of the workshop participants will be better prepared to:

  • Plan appropriately and ‘set the stage’ up front for a positive interview experience.
  • Communicate and demonstrate their unique value during the interview.
  • Use follow-up techniques to reinforce their value add to the organization and address any issues that were raised during the interview.
  • Use new approaches when talking with recruiters or hiring managers about potential opportunities – before or after the interview.

In addition, all will leave with examples and tools to support their use of the concepts in the ‘real world’.
