Episode 15

This little shot is scheduled for 10 am on Tuesday the 18th of August. If you arrive here earlier, don’t forget to turn on notifications via the YouTube premiere button so you can be first to know once the mini-tutorial pushes live.

I hope that these strategies have given you a few ideas to add to your online job interview preparation. 

I’ve been putting a lot of thought into what to prepare for The Little Shot™ in recent weeks especially since the situation has really deteriorated for many people lately. 

I wanted to give you strategies that you can incorporate immediately to present better visually in online interviews.

But don’t forget your voice and message are also really important.

If you’re struggling to express yourself confidently and articulately in online job interviews, our High-Performance Communication Audit is a great fit.

This service will assess all aspects of your communication under pressure. We’ll investigate your voice tone, word choice, nonverbal communication and even speech pace and logical flow and what’s more, this is all done in a virtual video format. Make sure you check it out via the link below. 

Before you go make sure you share this post with anyone that you know is looking for work. It just might make a difference to their career path!

We can’t let our friends continue with bad lighting and poor eye contact in their online interviews so be a buddy and pass this one on!

And, if you’re on the hunt for a job, keep your spirits up and focus on your strengths. As hard as these days are, you only need 1 job & with a good mindset, patience and daily practice I’m sure you can push yourself onwards and up.

As I always say, communication is like string theory, it’s the foundation of everything, so go get them!

Show your smile, speak with confidence, stay optimistic, and I’ll see you next time.
