This Friday, we will resurrect another presentation that cancelled last month due to the weather. Gaius (pronounced GAY-us) Cameron, his Recruiting Manager, and a teammate from Randstad Staffing will be conducting speed interviews.
We will provide forms at the meeting on which you will provide three specific pieces of information: the approximate salary you’re looking for, companies you’ve interviewed with, and whether and how much you’re willing to travel. After that, you will have 90 seconds in which to make your pitch, explaining your skills and qualifications, what you can contribute to a company, the kinds of problems you can solve, etc. The Randstad folks will use your pitch to determine whether they currently have a job they can refer you to or whether they can develop an interview for you with a company that uses your skills.
Even if you don’t have the official form right now, you can still be composing the key points you would make in a 90-second pitch. Only a small number of people will be able to be interviewed, but if you feel this exercise is useful, we’ll schedule it on a regular basis.
The program will take place at the regular LPJC meeting from 10-11:30 a.m. Be there or suffer the consequences.v
Location: The meeting will take place at 10:00 a.m. at the Capital City Events Center, 6700 Middle Fiskville Road, suite 403, on the corner of MF and Huntland. The Events Center faces Huntland and is located next to the movie theatre.
