Program August 15: How to Ace the Performance-Based Interview and Land a Career, Not a Job

 


 

Launch Pad Job Club Announcement Frog

Lou Adler has been advising companies and recruiters on how to find, screen, interview, and hire top talent for decades. His book, Hire with Your Head, has been a best seller since it was first published in 1997, and its success has made Adler a Subject Matter Expert on the hiring process in both the business world and on LinkedIn.

In his newest book, The Essential Guide for Hiring and Getting Hired, Adler provides advice not only for the recruiter trying to refer the best qualified candidates, but also for the job seekers who want to make a smart career move.

At this Friday’s meeting, we’ll concentrate just on the Performance-Based interview process and how you can leverage it to build your career.  Yeah, yeah, I know . . . this sounds really boring.  I promise it won’t be. Plus, you’ll alll get an interesting interviewee evaluation form that shows how interviewers rate applicants.

Recruiter Alert: We generally have Shawn Fredrick from personifycorp.com in attendance at our meetings. This Friday, there’s a strong possibility we’ll also have David Munoz in attendance representing solarwinds.com.  Check out the job postings on those company websites. If you’re qualified, bring your targeted resume to the meeting.

 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.

First-timers: People attending Launch Pad for the first time should arrive by 9:15 a.m. to be able to sign in, grab some refreshments, and be ready for New Member Orientation that takes place from 9:30-10:00 a.m.
By the way, attending a Job Club meeting does count as a bona fide job search contact by the Texas Workforce Commission because we announce so many job openings during our meetings.
There’s more:  Come early or stay late: LPJC member Estella Guerrero will be taking head shot photos for free before the meeting and for a while after the meeting. These photos would be suitable for LinkedIn or Facebook sites.
NOTE: The folks from INDEED.COM will be at the meeting this Friday. Come at 9:30 and meet with them to check out the latest changes on the indeed.com website.
This Friday will be a TWO-FER: Our monthly resume tweaking will take place from 2:00-4:30 pm at the Consulting Solutions.Net office at 1016 La Posada, suite 297. We postponed tweaking from our usual 2nd Friday to this Friday so that our Ph.D. resume expert can be there.  Bring 5 copies of your resume to be tweaked and critiqued.
