Monday, July 25th from 7:00 – 9:00 pm: Temple Community Network (TCN) will host: John West Hadley,a Career Search Counselor, who will give a presentation titled: The Interview As Needs Assessment. Ifyou engage your interviewers, and have good answers to their questions, willyou get the offer? Maybe. To really seal the deal, you need to treat theinterview as your chance to conduct a thorough needs assessment. This doesnot mean just asking about their needs and then selling yourself appropriately.You cannot simply accept surface descriptions of what they are seeking and why.And selling too soon sends the wrong signals, often in taking the conversation inan unproductive direction. An effective needs assessment dramatically increasesyour chances of not just getting the offer, but getting the best offer. Andwhen you get into the interviewer's head and find out what the true driversare, you are positioned to show them just how much it is costing NOT to hireyou. A side benefit is that in uncovering the deep underlying issues they face,you will find out if they are even ones you WANT to get involved with. Join usas John works with us on just how to do that. This will not only build yourinterview muscles, but you will find yourself equipped to have much strongernetworking conversations. The group typically meets on the fourth Monday ofeach month.
