Topic: The Art of Interviewing”

In today’s ever increasing competitive market place, the pool of eligible candidates for a job is increasing. What separates those who land the job from the ones who only get a first interview are not only the skills one brings to the table, but equally important, the effectiveness of how one communicates that they are THE best person for the job.

Join professional development consultant Efren Mojica of “All about You Consulting” as he educates us on the entire interview process: pre interview, tackling com­mon difficult interview questions, post interview, dress code, etc. The goal is for the attendees to be better equipped to face challenging interviews and questions.
