As someone who has spent their entire career sourcing, recruiting, interviewing, selecting and hiring candidates, you’d think I would have learned a thing or two about how to interview well.
But it’s one thing to be the interviewer – and another to be the interviewee. Like most people, I’ve had my share of interviews where I left feeling like I had nailed it – and I may have bombed at least once. I blame Canada. Just because.
But for you – there’s hope! I’m honored to be one of the panelists in a FREE webinar on Thursday, September 23, 2010, where we’ll be sharing tips, hints, do’s and don’ts on the “art” of interviewing.

The Lost Art of Interviewing
Thursday, September 23, 2010
Noon EST | 9:00am PST
You’ve used all the tools at your disposal, networked until your hands were sore, revised your resume a hundred times, survived the online application process, passed the personality assessments and FINALLY landed a job interview. But did you save enough energy to make the most of this rare occasion?
Let’s face facts – with competition for jobs at an all-time high, how you perform during your interview can either be your shining moment or result in complete self-destruction. The bad news for many is that interviewing is the weakest link in their career arsenal. The good news for you is that we’ve assembled a terrific panel of experts who can offer pragmatic advice and answer your most common questions, including:
- How do I best prepare for an interview?
- What are today’s employers likely to ask?
- What can I (the applicant) ask during the interview process?
- What are some of the more common mistakes to avoid?
Moderated by JobAngels Founder Mark Stelzner, our panel will address these items and more, including an opportunity for you to pose your own questions directly to our experts. Please welcome recruiting and HR experts Jennifer McClure, Deirdre Honner and John Nykolaiszyn as they help you rediscover the lost art of interviewing. And if you’re on Twitter, please follow our hashtag #voc10 to participate real-time with your fellow attendees. This is sure to be a popular event so sign up today!
