“The Needs Assessment” with John Hadley (3/17/2018)

If you engage your interviewers, and have good answers to their questions, will you get the offer? Maybe.career support group at st. gregory the great meeting

To really seal the deal, you need to treat the interview as your chance to conduct a thorough needs assessment.

This doesn’t mean just asking about their needs and then selling yourself appropriately. You can’t simply accept surface descriptions of what they are seeking and why. And selling too soon sends the wrong signals, often in taking the conversation in an unproductive direction.

An effective needs assessment dramatically increases your chances of not just getting the offer, but getting the best offer. And when you get into the interviewer’s head and find out what the true drivers are, you are positioned to show them just how much it is costing NOT to hire you. (A side benefit is that in uncovering the deep underlying issues they face, you will find out if they are even ones you WANT to get involved with.)

Join us on Saturday, March 17th, as Career Search Counselor John Hadley (www.JHACareers.com) demonstrates exactly how to do that. This will not only build your interview muscles, but you will find yourself equipped to have much stronger networking conversations..
