Interview Tactics

If you want almost any job, you have to be able to ace interviews.  We'll talk about the interview life cycle, from the initial phone screening interview at the beginning to how to properly express thank yous at the end.  We will cover how to skillfully steer an interview down the path you want.  We also get into questions that you might receive in an interview, including those that are inappropriate or seemingly don't have a good answer. We also cover the value of informational interviews and how to go about getting them.

Notes about our venue:  Rogue Ale House provides space for our presentations free of charge as a service to the community.  Because of the serving of alcohol on the premises, our presentations are restricted to those who are 21 or older and can produce valid proof of age if requested.  Also, we request that outside food and drink are not brought into Rogue, as we would currently be forced to shut down this service if Rogue decided that we were no longer welcome.

    It was informative. The tall and pretty young lady who backed me up also encouraged me to keep trying to get my foot in the door.

    This was a great event! Many practical and relevant interviewing actions and techniques were presented. The participants asked questions and introduced examples for discussion, and Gary fielded well, with well-formed responses. The workshop ended a little early, and was a very good length in my opinion for keeping attention while still being quite thorough.

    One improvement might have been having participants work out examples. For example, everyone could say a potential question that they might ask the interviewers at the end of the interview. During these workshops, I often try to synthesize what the lecturer is saying and then think of examples that apply to my own situation. Sometimes, my examples might not be as effective or on-target as they should be. Having ideas voiced would allow audience members feedback on how they are processing the workshop.

    Thanks JobGroup, and thank you Gary!
