Hiring Fair Preparation Workshops

ACING THE INTERVIEW

Many people worry about what questions they will be asked in an interview, but it is nearly impossible to know for sure. But when you know how to handle the types of questions, you can respond effectively to anything they ask. In addition to the most commonly asked questions, we will also go over the “toughest” questions, and you may find that they aren’t so tough at all.  We will also learn what questions are inappropriate, and how to respond to them. Participants will have the opportunity to practice and receive coaching in a safe and supportive environment.
