#051 Becoming an Interview Pro with Dr. Ashlee Klevens Hayes

How much of a difference could being an Interview Pro make for you?

Let’s find out. Try this visualization with me:

Imagine walking into that employer’s office (or clicking “Join With Video” on Zoom since most of us are interviewing remotely these days) and realizing that the person in front of you has the power to change your life. 

You’ve arrived at the “final destination” in your job search, and now you’ve got to talk about yourself.

Now answer me this:

Can you say with 100% confidence that your interview and communication skills would influence that hiring manager to give you a life-changing opportunity?

If you didn’t answer with a resounding “yes!”, that’s completely OK and normal. 

As much training as NP’s have completed, a knowledge gap still exists for most of us;
Nobody taught us how to glow with confidence and communicate our value.

The good news is, it’s all learn-able,

And Executive Career Coach, Dr. Ashlee Klevens Hayes is on the podcast today to show us how!
