Company needs change. The business environment changes. The market goes up and down, people leave and get hired. But one thing that doesn’t change much – amidst all the swirling change occurring around it – is the job interview.

That crucial hour or so is your opportunity to showcase yourself and make a compelling case why you’re the best fit for the job. While the job interview is the one piece of the process you have the most control over, all too often candidates wreck their chances with poor showings. This lively and engaging session will cover the three essential P’s: Prepare, Practice, and Perform.

How well you execute the three P’s will have a profound impact on your interviewing success. We’ll cover the questions you’re most likely to be asked and how to develop great answers that hit the mark. We’ll also discuss how to deal with nerves, communicate your personal brand, and make a good impression during those pivotal opening minutes. Plus, we’ll make time to practice so you can be at your best when it counts!

By attending this engaging, thought-provoking and motivational session, you will learn:

  • Common mistakes committed by interviewees and how to avoid them
  • The best way to prepare for those tough interview questions
  • How to deal with nerves and present your best self
  • What your personal brand is and how to best convey it
  • Effective ways to practice so you can ace the interview!

About The Group: The goal of the Career Networking Group in Montgomery County is to provide a supportive environment where members can obtain ideas, direction, and support and learn skills to improve their job search and career.

Friday Sept. 16, 2022 9:45 am-12:00 pm, Mercer County PSG presents Jan Goodman – How to Thrive during Transition and Change

Times of transition hold both challenges and opportunities. What are you really committed to in this moment?

Tony Robbins once said, “Quality questions create a quality life.”

  • Is your behavior consistent with what you are committed to?
  • Are you present and engaged in your own life?
  • Are you satisfied with your choices?
  • Would you like to make better choices in the future?
     Our life is made up of decisions. When we ask the right questions it heightens our awareness and allows us to see more clearly. The strategies and philosophies that will be presented in this workshop provide attendees with tools that self-empower. The workshop is designed to help you achieve your personal best both professionally and personally. It’s a point of view that is based on choice. Self-empowerment feeds our unconscious mind to make conscious choices that allow us to be successful.

The Ramsey Job Search Work Team meets every Monday morning. Networking starts from 9 to 9:30am and the meeting starts at 9:30 to 10:30 while virtual.  Members are expected to hold each other accountable at weekly (virtual) meetings for conducting a job search in earnest. Historically, the team has enjoyed a very high rate of “landings” by those conducting an active and vigorous job search.

Based on the Lee-Hecht-Harrison model, it’s more of a project management team made up of people committed to helping each other in the job search. By attending regularly and staying focused on key tasks, meetings serve as an advisory panel that knows you and your search and can offer answers to the questions that come up in job hunting.

Help others to help you (especially for the first few meetings) by having a prepared “elevator pitch” to introduce yourself. Jobs open up because there’s a problem to solve or a need to fill.

Please contact Beth Berkenfeld at bberk2@optonline.net or 201-797-4342 if interested in joining the group.
