Tips to Help You Conduct an Interviewing Workshop at Your Library (Live Online -PLAN)

In this 90-minute workshop, we will cover tips you can use to coach your patrons (or friends and family members!) on how to handle the result of a good resume – the interview. We will discuss what to include in our answers as well as what not to share. We will learn the “best” way to answer one of the most common interview questions: “So tell me a little bit about yourself.” What would you say to that question? Would you tell the interviewer that you’ve been married 14 times and have 31 kids? Would you tell them you’re just looking for a job to pay the bills? Of course not! Yet you would be surprised at what slips out if we haven’t prepared a professional answer to this question (hopefully we don’t have to worry about the part about being married 14 times). This will be your chance to learn how to help people polish their answers to some thought-provoking questions – instead of waiting until they are in front of the interviewer to come up with those answers! And…you’ll receive handouts that you can reproduce for your own workshops.
