The interview starts and the first thing you hear is, “Tell Me About Yourself”
And so it begins. Are you prepared to answer this question without going immediately into your past jobs and work activities? Where do you begin?
Who you are is so much more than what you do. KimAileen White’s goal is to help you gain a better understanding and be able to express that you know something about yourself as a “human being” rather than just a “human doing”.
KimAileen provides a fresh perspective on career development, job search and personal presentation based on basic business communications and sales principles. Be ready for a fast-paced, up-close-and-personal look at how to position yourself the day of the interview, and as you build your network.
KimAileen’s presentation includes an interactive exercise so be prepared to have some fun while learning one sales technique you can put immediately into action when you leave the workshop. Everyone is encouraged to bring a minimum of 10 business cards to the workshop for an interactive exercise.
