|Overview:||The technical aspect of a job interview is stressful enough, but for many people, the "soft skills" (interpersonal) portion of an interview is even more challenging. This talk will present tools and strategies for managing interview anxietypreparing compelling responses to various types of situational questions, turning weakness and failure questions into opportunities, establishing potential fit and contribution, and designing good questions to ask interviewers at the end of the interaction. It will also examine how a wide variety of factors can affect interview performance: including age, gender, ethnicity, neurodivergence, and even vocal tone. Even the most introverted and anxious applicants can manage a great interview, with adequate preparation beforehand, and this presentation will help job seekers balance their technical skills with a solid foundation of communication skills, thus making them more competitive in an especially challenging global economy.|
