During an interview, your number one goal is to get across to a hiring manager why you are the right person for the job by letting them know you have the skills, the personality, and the drive to make it happen in this job. You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. My Charlotte Community Radio, Nine to Five in-studio guest Ericka Spradley wants to be sure you are serving word salad during your interview.
Ericka Spradley is the President of My Next Level, and she ensures ambitious professionals and students get hired. As a Career Coach, Adjunct Professor and Author — 30 minute Career Coach: Interview Basics for High School Students and 7 days to Confident Interviews — she empowers others to take their interviewing skills to the next level so they can ultimately secure employment. Ericka also provides career support and guidance for clients when she’s not working tirelessly to change the career readiness conversation and course curriculum to include interviewing skills.
Now, I bet you are asking yourself what in the world is word salad?!! Listen to my next show on September 6th so you will know what to do before the interview, during the interview, and after the interview.
