Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's curator insight, April 13, 9:36 AM

Just like the descriptions in this article, you shouldn't try to be the Big joker, or too serious, or too casual. 

 

It is so important to remember that you absolutely have no control over the interview setting, the interviewer, or the questions.  The only thing you have control over is yourself.

 

So when you do your best to prepare, you should be able to walk into the interview ready to perform at your best.  Yes, I did say perform.  The interview is like a performance.  You have to be the best version of your professional you for the interview.

 

Hope you enjoy the suggestions in this article.

 

Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!

Definitely in agreement about this, but would add that the resume should tell your story in a way that will illustrate how your skills fit the needs of the company and the job to which you are applying. I definitely like this approach, though!
Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's comment, April 10, 11:01 AM
Thank you Victoria...I could not agree with you more:) Repackaging your resume in a way that illustrates how your skills fit the needs of the job, department, and company is vital! Thanks you for stopping by, so great to meet you:)

In This Flipped Class, Teachers Learn From Students' Video -- THE Journal

In This Flipped Class, Teachers Learn From Students' Video -- THE Journal | Academic Librarians | Scoop.it

By Kim Fortson

Summary by SmartBrief on EdTech

 

"A middle-school teacher in Amherst, N.Y., has adopted the flipped instructional method -- with a twist. Rather than creating instructional videos for his students, Rob Zdrojewski has his students use screencasting technology to create instructional videos for teachers. In the videos, which serve as professional development for teachers, students offer instruction on technology, such as using Gmail and Google Drive. Each video is 90 seconds or less."

The Future of Libraries in a Digital Culture

The Future of Libraries in a Digital Culture | Academic Librarians | Scoop.it

Until recently, public libraries had little reason to innovate. Then Google arrived. More disruptive technologies followed, causing an identity crisis for librarians. Now the profession is re-thinking its purpose. […]
Pre-Internet, a library could be object oriented -- all about books. But the confluence of digitization and a prolonged recession has triggered an evolution that puts a focus on people, not things. Doing so has a ripple effect that invigorates a community.

Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's curator insight, March 10, 7:00 PM

Zig Ziglar would say that there are no traffic jams on the extra mile. 

 

I was honored to hear him speak many years ago, and I have never forgotten his pearls of wisdom.  He talked about the importance of always doing your best (that extra) in everything you do.  He shared with us that the way we do anything is often the way we do everything.

 

So ask yourself...are you spending the six hours to sharpen your knowledge and interview skills prior to the interview?   I sincerely believe that anyone who strives to go that extra mile to do their homework, planning, and rehearsing...the work will eventually pay off. 

 

So please do let me know what we can do to help you land that job of your dreams.

 

Until we talk again -- PS - Live on Purpose!
