Closing The Interview “Deal”

By Ford R. Myers,
President of Career Potential, LLC

I recently featured an article in this e-newsletter about Accomplishment Stories. I’m going to assume that you have written and memorized your own Accomplishment Stories, that you’ve extensively practiced telling them, and that you’ve even used them in some interviews.

To really leverage the power of Accomplishment Stories, however, it is important to apply them in “closing the interview.” In the sales field, of course, the term “closing” means that you “get the deal” – and that is how the term is intended here too. The only difference is that in this case, the “deal” you close is represented by a formal job offer.

You’re Invited – Two Career Success Events – June 2015

Event #1 – Thursday, June 25, 2015

Topic: Get Noticed! Using Social Media to Fire-Up Your Job Search.

Time: 6:30pm to 9:00pm
Location: Bartley Hall, Villanova University, Villanova, PA
Investment: $10.00

Why is it that some job-seekers are getting responses and others never hear a word? They may have the same experience and credentials as you, or even less, but they are receiving calls from recruiters and are getting job interviews. Because job search is like a game, and in order to win you need to know the rules and the strategy. A big part of the strategy is using social media to build your brand. You are no longer an “employee” or future employee … you are a “company of one.” And like any successful company, you need a marketable product and a strong brand.

In this program, you’ll learn how others have used social media and other web-based platforms to build and maintain their personal brand.
