Sweaty palms. Heart beating loudly. Dry mouth. You're FREAKING OUT!!
To make matters worse, you ask yourself:
What questions will be asked?
What should I say?
These are some of the signs of being nervous before and during the interview. There simply isn't enough deodorant to fight off your sweaty underarms, right?
But what would happen if you knew some of the questions before they were asked? Not only would you be better prepared, you'd be able to practice your answers BEFORE being interviewed. Sounds good?
This 6 week workshop gives you the tools so you can ACE answering those interview questions--both general and specific--related to a forensic job.
Each week will introduce the interview question asked by FORENSIC PROFESSIONALS during an oral interview panel.
Each week answers will be reviewed, critiqued, and REFINED so you can develop a dialogue in answering the question, not one that is robotic (boring).
Sample answers will be given to each question so you can CREATE your own successful answer that will help you STAND OUT from other applicants.
Better still, the workshop will help you:
become more prepared in answer questions during an interview so you can speak confidently and without hesitation.
look like a professional which shows in the way you conduct yourself in the interview room.
establish yourself as the BEST candidate for the job by creating a long lasting first impression.
prepare answers that are not memorized but are spoken in a clear open dialogue which invites the oral interview panel to see you as a prepared candidate.
be able to practice and develop your interviewing skills before the actual job interview.
market yourself as the best qualified candidate for forensic job openings in other departments, agencies, and states.
reduce interview related stress and calm your nerves which will help you think clearly when answering the questions asked.
and finally, come across as a serious and prepared candidate for the job you are being interviewed for and increase your chances of getting hired.
The workshop also covers:
the importance of joining professional organizations and the #1 organization you need to join and why.
the importance of marketing your career on LinkedIn and why this platform is a must for your career.
importance of always training for your career and tell you where to get (free) training.
importance of marketing (posting) your resume on a well known (free) platform.
