Come enjoy a night of laughter inspired by our best humorous and impromptu speakers!

You’ll even learn a few things. Most importantly, you’ll have fun.

The event will start promptly at 6:30 p.m., but contestants, judges, and other contest personnel are encouraged to arrive by 6:00 p.m.

Job Interview Skills Workshop – Babble-On Club @ Must register to find out
Nov 11 @ 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM

Special event with keynote speaker Cleon Cox, DTM, author of “The 50 Most Asked Questions from the Newly Unemployed,” and facilitator of the Job Finders Support Group since 1991.

Register on Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/job-interview-skills-workshop-tickets-51381276782. The workshop is free of charge, but space is limited. Be sure to register in advance and arrive early to check in by 3:15 pm.

Learn from experienced Toastmasters how to put your best foot forward when responding to questions:

• Overcome nervousness
• Summarize key points in 1-2 minutes
• Deflect/spin “negative” questions (e.g., What is your greatest
weakness?)
• Practice answering questions and receive immediate feedback on
your response

Whether you are unemployed or interviewing for a promotion, this is a great place to practice answering typical (and some not-so-typical) interview questions.
