Interviewing, like all forms of communication, is about telling stories that resonate with your audience. Your story can be the most important one they hear!

Interviewing is about demonstrating how your background, experience, skills and enthusiasm are aligned with the employer’s needs, and that you have a unique set of talents that can add value and move their agenda forward. To ensure that decision makers understand what exactly you can do for and with the employer, you want to build verbal bridges between you and them. This takes place in the form of stories.

In this webinar, presented by Alaina Levine, we will discuss leveraging virtual platforms to execute an interviewing plan that will help you land that dream job. We’ll look at how to craft and deliver stories before, during, and after the interview, how to adjust different elements of a virtual experience (such as light and sound), and how to look professional on camera. We will also go over how to deliver an oral presentation—such as a job talk or a colloquium—using virtual methods to indicate your knowledge, expertise, enthusiasm, and collaborative nature.
