The ‘In Courage’ Newsletter — “Classy Answers to Classical Questions”
A man has joy in an apt answer, And how delightful is a timely word! New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Reader Warning: The answers you will hear are not slick and clever comebacks, but are high-quality responses to substantial inquiries that will help you get to yes in your Search!
You know, this is true, isn’t it? I remember times when I’ve been really stumped on a computer app. I remember how I felt when the tech guy (or sometimes the tech gal) had just the right answer for me. I was back in business, and felt great!
This week will help you learn how you can be “the tech guy” — the answer to your future manager’s problem!
That would be another great subtitle for next week’s presentation.
• Why were you let go at your last job?
• If you are currently working, why are you seeking to change jobs?
• What are your strengths and weaknesses?
• And those questions about money.
• …and lots of others.
We all dread these questions. But there’s no reason to. Join us on Thursday evening and find out why.
And think about this:
We tend to think of work as something that we need in order to pay our bills. But, on the other side of the interview table, there is a manager and their people, and they have a problem, and they need a solution, and, 9 times out of 10, they are not very good at interviewing people.
This is not really much of surprise, is it? Well,
can really help this process be productive for both of you by learning how to answer the big questions very, very well. “Classy Answers to Classical Questions” will help you to do just that.
(Here’s a Tip: Check out Week 2 and Week 3 to help make sure you’re bringing the right stuff to the meeting.)
But, ready or not, come join us, and we’ll learn together!
Next Week: “Interviewing Rehearsal: Practice, Practice, Practice”
Real-Time Practice, and Real-Time Help
That’s what interview practice is. This is a precious opportunity to,
(1.) Work on those questions that come up during an interview.
(2.) Get feedback from Mentors (and fellow job hunters).
(3.) Get to practice in a situation where everyone is really rooting for you.
(4.) Make “mistakes” for FREE!
More on this next week, but let’s just say that you will sharpen your skills — and also learn how to sharpen them even more.
That’s it for this week. And may the God of hope fill you with hope!
All the best,
