This 30 min course is designed to improve the way you prepare for an interview. Not only will I provide a blueprint for interview preparation and suggested action steps, you will also learn to approach interviews strategically instead of emotionally.
What you learn:
1. How to assess common communication mistakes that can cost you the job.
2. The components of a 30/60/90 day strategy to give yourself an advantage over other candidates.
