Career Hacking 101 — Level up your interview skills
A CV & Interview Skills Workshop
Duration: 2 days | 9am - 4pm
Available dates in Jan 2021: 9 - 10 Jan, 16 - 17 Jan, 23 - 24 Jan
On average, it takes recruiters about 7.4 seconds to go through a resume and the first 90s in an interview to know if you're the person they want to hire.
First impressions matter and sometimes, they last forever. With just about 60 seconds left into the interview, how do you prove that you are the one that they are looking for?
"Instead of missing out on opportunities, get a headstart in your career in 2021 and become better at interviewing in 2 days."
This beginner-friendly workshop is designed to equip participants with modern and practical skills to present themselves effectively, develop strategies to help them secure their ideal role and help them successfully transition to a new role.
By the end of the workshop, you will be empowered with:
- Modern tips and hacks to up your job hunting game
- Knowing what interviewers want and how they assess talent
- Self-awareness to craft your personal brand and story
- Identification of potential gaps to fill
- Knowing how to make an entrance and exit in interviews
- Greater confidence in the ability to present yourself
- Hiring advice from industry specialists and veterans (see list below)
