What to Expect and How to Prepare For A Job Interview

Online • January 10, 2019

After 20+ years in recruiting, both in-house and with a retained executive search firm, I have interviewed thousands of candidates. I share what works and what doesn't when interviewing for a job.

Thu, Jan 10 1:00 PM - Thu, Jan 17 1:00 PM EST


If landing a new job is one of your new year’s resolutions, you need to know how to interview. If you want to make a career change, get a promotion, or grow your small business, you still need to know how to talk about yourself (that’s just an interview disguised in a different format).

I am hosting two webinars on interviewing for jobs to take the guesswork on what to expect and how to prepare. After 20+ years in recruiting, both in-house and with a retained executive search firm, I have interviewed thousands of candidates for different industries, companies, and roles.

There is so much to cover that a one-hour webinar won’t be enough, so the content will be divided into 2 parts. $20.19 gives you access to both webinars.

Webinar 1, January 10: Behind-the-Scenes In The Job Interview – A Recruiter’s Perspective

  1. Real-life examples of how interviews fit into the employment hiring process
  2. Live versus Phone versus Video – the medium changes the experience (for both sides)
  3. First round versus Callbacks – even if questions are similar, employers are listening for different things
  4. 1:1 versus Group – how to handle more than one interviewer at one time
  5. Exploratory, behavioral, technical…there are many types of interviews
  6. Executive presence – a checklist so you know where you stand
  7. How the process changes for senior-level hiring

Webinar 2, January 17: How To Prepare For A Job Interview

  1. Two elements of the “best” interview responses
  2. Five steps to giving clear examples without getting mired in the details
  3. How to handle a hostile interviewer
  4. How to address red flags – too little/ too much experience, gap in your employment history, fired from your last job
  5. How to structure common questions you know you’re going to get (“Tell me about yourself” is a minefield)
  6. Questions to ask
  7. Mistakes to avoid – the interview starts much earlier than you think, thank you note horror stories, and more

Call in live at 1p Eastern on each Thursday, or listen to the replay. All registrants will receive recordings so you can refer to the coaching again and again.

Just $20.19 for access to both webinars – in celebration of 2019.

This will be the only opportunity to access these individual webinars -- I am recording them for an upcoming series, and they will not be available as a standalone product after the live events.

See you at the webinar!
