Getting to an offer in your job search – or in any crucial career conversation – comes down to your ability to focus the conversation on one thing: value. Unfortunately, most people miss out on potentially huge career opportunities because they struggle to articulate their value and use up valuable interviewing time focusing on non-value added topics. In this interactive webinar, we’ve paired Kathy Robinson, executive career coach and digital career platform founder, with Annette Richmond, career coach, resume writer, podcaster and Clubhouse host, for a lively discussion about how you can find and harness the value that only you can deliver, based on your interests and expertise. We discussed how you can use four key principles to elevate every career conversation, including an interview, and how you can prepare for job interviews to come across as a must-have hire for your dream employer. You’ll get actionable frameworks and preparation strategies you can apply right away to define, and showcase, your own unique value to any hiring team.
