Free career workshop Aug. 2: ‘Ready, Set Interview!’
Updated: August 27, 2012 10:35AM
Dominican University’s School of Professional and Continuing Studies will host a free career workshop on effective communication and interviewing skills from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2, at the university’s Priory Campus, 7200 W. Division St., River Forest.
This workshop is designed to help people in job and internship interviews, or those experiencing job-related communication issues. After attending, workshop participants will be more aware of and hopefully be prepared to improve aspects of their communication related to achieving their employment goals.
While many people believe they are “good communicators,” taking the time to identify your communication strengths and weaknesses for job interviewing or work duties will positively influence your chances of being successful in achieving your employment goals. From articulation, language and voice skills, to really hearing and understanding what is being asked and formulating “on target” responses to key questions, communication is critical.
Whether you believe you are “perfect for the job,” “a stretch candidate,” returning to the work force after a break, or are honing your work skills for that preferred job, assessing and rehearsing your communication effectiveness is key to obtaining success when interviewing.
The session will be led by Alexis Rasley, a practicing speech-language pathologist with more than 25 years of experience in school, hospital, rehabilitation, business and private practice. She holds a master’s degree in communication sciences and disorders from Northwestern University and specializes in accent reduction, voice care and treatment, as well as professional speaking skills.
Programs of Dominican University’s School of Professional and Continuing Studies are designed for motivated adult learners committed to taking the next step in their academic and professional careers.
