Job seeking in the Atlanta area? Here’s an event you won’t want to miss: Hiring for Hope’s Impression Management Workshop this Tuesday. (I’ll be speaking, too.)
The program materials explain:
85% of what we communicate during an interview occurs as a result of a number of nonverbal signals that our body sends. Consequently, possessing the knowledge and ability to appropriately choose our interview attire and effectively manage any verbal and nonverbal signals that we may send is critical.
In this workshop Hiring for Hope’s Founder, Tegan Acree will cover how to dress appropriately and act the part of a professional. She will teach you how to “listen” and communicate during an interview with your eyes, ears and mouth in order to be able to respond appropriately and leave an interviewer with their desired impression.
When Tegan finishes her presentation, I will provide some details and information about how social media plays into your professional appearance. I’ll also be available after the presentation for questions and will have copies of my book, Social Networking for Career Success, for sale.
Following the Workshop, all job seekers will have an opportunity to connect for free with Hiring for Hope’s Career Angels to receive one-one-career coaching assistance, advice and job leads.
Time: October 11, 2011 from 6:30pm to 9pm
