We want our clients to have the confidence to be their best selves in an interview – to feel prepared, show up with professionalism, stand out from other candidates, and capitalize on the opportunity to negotiate their top salary.

In this 90-minute session, career industry leaders Elizabeth Craig and Karen James Chopra will share coaching tools you can use to guide clients throughout the interview preparation process.

Participants will walk away with tools to coach clients to their peak interview performance, including:

LinkedIn: What Marketers Should Make of LinkedIn's New Stories Experiment (Business Insider)
LinkedIn has joined the list of social media platforms using stories after the resounding success of stories on Instagram. This article shares how it is rolling out and what it might mean for us and our clients. And, if you missed it, they also rolled out a feature for job seekers with a criminal record … and a Spotify playlist for job seekers (never a dull moment at LinkedIn!).

Advancement: Becoming Multifaceted is a Key to Career Advancement (ATD)
The title of this article didn't quite do it justice, as it provides practical tips for improving communication skills and emotional intelligence (one of CTL's 2020 megatrends).

Hiring Trends: How to Prioritize Skills Over Resumes When Hiring: 12 Proven Strategies (Forbes)
Hiring for skills instead of degrees is a trend that's been in the news for the last few years (read more in CTL's 2019 industry trends).

CTL Associate Call

In this CTL Associate Call, our CTL Board will be leading a discussion about how we as career service providers can "compete" as our field shifts. We'll talk about competing with large organizations that are starting to offer more services (like LinkedIn's new interview coaching and resume review services) ...

AND, for those in organizations and in private practice, how you can incorporate new technologies like AI coaching into your work and communicate your value above and beyond these types of tools.

The call is open to all CTL Associates and is a way to help you stay current, learn some new tricks, and share some of your own wealth of information. CTL Associates, watch for an email from Marie Zimenoff with call-in details.

You MUST be an Associate to participate. To read about all of the benefits and opportunities of becoming a CTL Associate ($399 lifetime fee), click here.
