Presentations in Spanish are available upon request.

In the first half of this workshop we will discuss the “dos and don’ts” of dressing for the job interview and maintaining your look after you get the job. In the second half, the proper interviewing approach, effectively dealing with the work and environment and the “dos and don’ts” of workplace communication will be presented.

In this workshop you will learn how to strategically target your strengths, narrow down your search, and effectively manage your job search and interview preparation. You will organize your thoughts and stay focused during and after the interview. The saying “work smarter, not harder” also applies to a job search and interviewing.
