Interview Practice: A Midsummer's Mocktail

What do BBQs, weddings, graduations, sporting events, and concerts have in common? They all offer opportunities to gather with others AND they present an EXCELLENT landscape for networking.

Really?? Really!  Summer events are the perfect time to cultivate your network of advocates. Learn how to speak casually, effectively, and powerfully about your experience, job search, and career goals...and watch your network grow! 

Job seekers that cultivate a strong network access better leads and company information. Join us on June 21 at 10am for our monthly Interview Practice! We will simulate these summer gatherings so you can practice speaking with intention and confidence!

Note: since this is a simulated gathering no actual drinks or refreshments will be served, cocktail or mocktail or otherwise. To be honest we don't even have water fountains in the building. 🥴 Thank you in advance for tempering your expectations around snack and beverage service! 😁 We look forward to seeing you at our Midsummer's Mocktail gathering on June 21st!
