Acing the Interview

It takes more than being smart to excel in an interview. It is critical to understand the preparation needed before the interview, the dynamics of the actual interview and follow up after the interview. This coaching session will benefit those seeking internships as well as those seeking full time jobs.

“Christy Demetrakis contributed her time and communication skills expertise with the Cincinnati Public Schools-Project SEARCH program. Her energy, style, and knowledge are superb.  Her presentation will have a lasting impact on our interns.”

Putting it all Together

Delivery is but one component of a great speech or presentation. The flow of your information is critical to ensuring you effectively and clearly communicate your message in a way your audience understands. It is not enough to have great information. You need to share it in a way that grabs your audience's attention, guides them through your message and gets them to ultimately take action. This workshop will teach you how to organize your speech leveraging a format you will use again and again to get maximum results.

“Your feedback really helped me better organize the flow of the presentation.  Also, practicing in front of you was tremendously helpful as always. I truly appreciate all your great coaching and guidance.”
Grace Park, Procter & Gamble
