The difference between a mediocre interview and a stellar one usually has more to do with how you present yourself than your qualifications. Nervousness can hide what you have to offer, but confidence, ease, and enthusiasm allow you to shine and will win employers over.  In this workshop, you will learn how you can bring these qualities to your next interview and present your best self.  You'll have the opportunity to practice with interactive exercises, receive coaching and/or watch others be coached. 

Attendees are asked to prepare answers to the following interview questions:

1. Tell me about yourself.
2. Describe a time when you worked on a team.

In addition, we are seeking 4 to 6 volunteers to do a mini-mock interview and receive personal coaching in front of the audience. If interested, please email Katherine Jo at kkj2102@columbia.edu.

This workshop will be led by Adam Grupper, President of Act Professional.  Adam Grupper is a professional actor, coach and trainer specializing in the application of acting techniques and principles of theatre to organizational and business settings.
