  • Introduction“What I’m really going to teach you about in this presentation isn’t ‘Successful Interviewing,’ but really….”
  • How to INTERVIEW NAKED.“Well, now that I have your attention, let me tell you a story…“THE NAKED PRESENTERQUESTION: “The Naked Presenter says a good way to start a presentation is to prove both the relevance of your topic AND your competence on the subject. Show of hands: who here has ever been in an interview? And who here wants a job at some point in their lives? Okay good, if neither of those are for you I guess you can leave..?”
  • Today, in an effort to simplify the interviewing process a little, I’ll break everything down into a 3-step process: PREPARE  DELIVER  SUCCEED.---Preparation [the months, weeks and days prior to an interview]---Delivery [the time that you are in the “hotseat”]---Success [how to tie it all together, yield results, and land the job you want]
  • “What you are essentially asking is ‘Am I a good fit for your company?’”“The most important part to remember about all this is that interviewing is a TWO-WAY STREET”
  • “This is your time to… BE HONEST, BRAG (a little), MARKET YOURSELF”“Keeping this in mind will help you control/manage your stress, make interviewing more effective and comfortable, and, as a result, catalyze success!”
  • Co-op/Career Services Office Resume building, mock interviews, insider information (industry, company, etc.)“I’ve brought a handout that I received from the Paychex Leadership Conference outlines some sample questions to prepare for an interview as well as some basic resume/career tips….”“By utilizing these resources you can provide an accurate/appropriate resume and be prepared for anything”
  • Use common sense. Eliminate as much stress as possible – do what works for you!
  • “So… because you’ve prepared so much, the interview is going to be a piece of cake. Right?”
  • “For those of us who don’t think it’ll be that easy I’ve compiled a list of some things to remember while in an interview and some things to avoid…”SOB’s = negative attitude, creation of unnecessary conflict, or activities that solely benefit the individual and NOT the group/company.AIDA: Attention = grab your “customer” and get his/her attention; Interest = demonstrate advantages/benefits; Desire = convince interviewer that they need you in their company for specific, quantifiable reasons; Action = Lead your interviewer to the only logical conclusion  hire YOU!
  • LIST.Self Awareness = know yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses… the interviewer doesn’t want to hear that you are perfect, they want to understand that you are perfect for their company!The problem that I’ve always faced is making sure I say everything I want to say in the interview to show the interviewer(s)all of these characteristics..One way to make sure you show yourself off in a direct and professional way is through….
  • An approach from HODU.com (a communication skills website) called “CAR” stories is one way to make sure you stand out in an interview and give direct answers to questions that leave you looking great…
  • “The biggest tip I can give you is to be comfortable in your own skin. Come prepared with stories that speak to your character and set you apart. Ooze confidence!”
  • So, in conclusion.. Remember to always prepare, put your best foot forward, stay naked, and have a hearty handshake ready for when you hear those magical words: “you’re hired!”
