Knowing what to say when proactively networking, calling employers, interviewing, following up after interviews will build your confidence and create more activity in your job search. Paul shared several effective scripts from his library in this meeting, and explained why certain questions and word choices, ones that are frequently recommended by popular interview coaches, are harmful to your chances of landing a job.
He shared scripts you can use to follow up with employers when you haven’t received feedback a week after your interview. He shared specifics of what to say when you call an employer and tell you to “just apply online”. He gives a much better alternative question to ask instead of, “What would your expectations of me be in the first 3 months?”
This is a highlight video from a 47-minute presentation where he shared 15 scripts from his job search program in SpeedUpMyJobSearch.com. Paul explained how to create contacts within target companies when you don’t know anyone there currently, and he gave two scripts to answer interview questions about skills with which you don’t have experience, and a lot more.
The original meeting via zoom was 69 minutes long, including initial start up time before anyone arrived and the wind-down conversation at the end. Of the 47 attendees, only 3 people stayed for LESS than 62 minutes, the rest stayed for more. Of those 3, two stayed for 55 minutes and the other person reported technical difficulties with his computer and was unable to stay. Those are unheard of retention numbers for a job search seminar! This was a good one, worth watching all the way through. The full version is available at: https://speedupmyjobsearch.com/jdng/
