Tuesday, September 20, 2022 -
6:00pm to 9:00pm

An additional offering offered by our October Presenter, Ryland Leyton!

Stop being afraid of interviews, resume writing, and learn how to stand out to the right hiring managers!

About this event

Would you say "Yes!" to either of these?

"I feel scared or unprepared for job interviews."

"I can't write a solid, stand-out resume."

If so, let me give you hand with that...

Interviewing isn't hard, you just have to be prepared!

I'll talk with you about the 4 kinds of interviewers you'll encounter, and how to manage each one. You'll learn how to make STAR answers to showcase your skills and abilities, building connection with the hiring manager. It's all about preparation & knowing who you are!

It may surprise you, but you and the interviewer really want the same thing - to figure out if you are right for the job and if the job is right for you!

Resumes really aren't that complicated. Keep it simple and you'll stand out!

We will cover all the basics of writing a solid resume. From how to make it easy for recruiters and managers to immediately find the right information about you, to answering the "So What?" challenge on everything you write. Your resume will help you set up interest and excitement for your interview & will lead you right into those STAR answers!

If I told you this class is usually $300, would you wonder what's going on?

Yes, I normally offer this course at $300. However, to give back to the community and try to help people , this session is being offered as a pay-what-you-can. I do this course this way once or twice a year, otherwise it's normally $300 as an in-person class.

  • The suggested fee is $20, and if that's not a big deal for you please pay that amount.
  • If you are having a hard time these days, then do less if that's your world.
  • If $20 is trivial for you, you might consider paying more. It helps cover those folks who did less, and it's always appreciated.
