As many of you know, I spent 9 years as Chief Financial Officer of an advertising agency. I won’t say from this public platform that I worked with a bunch of liars (please keep in mind that I didn’t say this), but it often felt like those around me were lying even when it wasn’t necessary, just so they wouldn’t get out of practice.

Presentation Summary: Effective Interview Strategies for Leaders

Guest Speaker: Paul Cameron, President – DriveStaff, Inc.

Interviews require leaders to convey that they have the skills to do the job, that they understand how to establish the right corporate culture, and that they can improve the strategic direction of the company to achieve better results…all within a couple hours in a controlled conversation. That’s a tall order for even the most talented of sales professionals. However, with the right approach, as Paul will explain, it’s not as difficult as it sounds. Join us to learn how to effectively interview for your next leadership position.

Paul will discuss how to:
1. Position yourself as a more valuable hire.
2. Proactively use employee retention to your advantage.
3. Identify and adapt to individual communication styles to connect faster.
4. Use a simple document during an interview to influence their decision in your favor.

Paul Cameron is the President of DriveStaff, Inc., a Technology Recruiting firm in Wheaton, IL, Author of "Turning Interviews into Offers" audio training program, and an Executive Job Search Advisor to C-Level professionals nationally through SpeedUpMyJobSearch.com.

- What role will demographics and geography play in job growth?
- How will virtual work evolve and present more opportunities for personal and organizational growth?
- What are the top 3 leadership traits that must be developed now for the “next normal”?

Topic: Managing Your Career in the Time of COVID - Becoming a VictOR Rather Than a VictIM

Speaker: Abby Kohut, aka "Absolutely Abby"

Presentation:
We remember 9/11 like it was last week. We felt like our whole world was crumbling. We were glued to the TV set for updates and we expected life to never go back to normal. Things ultimately got better, but each of us was forever changed by the tragedy. Now here we are again. Things have changed in a big way nearly overnight. You can't be alive and not be at least a bit unsettled about your career. However...there are things you can do to stay in control of your career and maybe even thrive during these challenging times. We'll talk these topics and more on our call.

1) How can I find companies that are actually hiring?
2) Do I really have to become a video interview expert?
3) How can I keep myself motivated?
4) How can I reinvent myself?

All attendees will receive a 28 page COVID-19 Job Search Resource Guide

Speaker's bio:
Abby Kohut is known in the job search world as "Absolutely Abby" because she tells the Absolute truth about the job search process. In the past 25 years, Abby has held corporate recruiting positions in a variety of industries and is responsible for helping 10,000 people get hired. Her website AbsolutelyAbby.com, which was selected as one of the “Top 100 Websites for Your Career” by Forbes, teaches candidates secrets the Absolute truth about the job search process that other recruiters won't tell you.
