I'm Qualified, Why Can't I Get Hired … Employment Strategies for College Students, Ethnic Populations and Adults in a Mid-life Career Change
Over the past 20 years, I've worked in the airline industry, television industry, health insurance, life insurance, mutual funds and publishing. When I went after these jobs, I couldn't offer work experience because I was young, continually reinventing myself, and I really didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. Yet, I was amazed that no matter how little experience I had, I always managed to impress the boss and get hired. I would often get the job and then be terrified because I had no actual "skills" for that job. However, once hired, I would apply myself, learn quickly and exceed the company's expectations of me every time.
Once I found myself in management positions, I had to fill open positions. However, when I interviewed college graduates, adults in a mid-life career change and individuals of diverse ethnic backgrounds I continually met bright individuals who may have been qualified but did not know how to "get the job"!
I've interviewed some of the brightest college students from top Ivy League schools, amazingly talented individuals of diverse ethnic backgrounds, and highly qualified adults facing mid-life career changes. I was continually frustrated because I could see their potential, but their interviewing skills were too poor to get them past our company's "gatekeepers" and get them hired. I kept thinking…If only I could get to them BEFORE they went on the interview!
Now I have the chance to teach you what I've learned about presenting your Radiant self and getting the job that is the best fit for you. Don't make the mistake of "getting the job" only to learn that you don't believe in the product you represent or that you can't get along with your fellow employees. This workshop will teach you:
- How to get the job
- How to get in touch with your true talents
- How to make a great first impression
- How to ask the right kinds of questions to ensure that the job is the right fit for you
- How to establish healthy boundaries with your boss and colleagues before you're even hired
- How to immediately lay the groundwork for advancement
I finally figured out what I want to do with my life and I'm living the life of my dreams. As a Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor, I teach my clients how to strengthen their body's self healing mechanisms, find their true voices, and rebuild their lives. I hope this workshop will be the beginning of a great journey for you…Radiant Health Strategies for your career and your life!
