PRAISE FOR MY INTERVIEWING WORKSHOP
“Good morning Ms. Jenkins,
My name is Tara R. While paying a visit to the library, I noticed the flyer to your workshop. Unprepared, and not professionally dressed, I decided to sit in because I didn’t want to miss out on an opportunity to learn valuable information. I am so glad that I did.
I am currently in between jobs and just recently worked as a Community Organizer for a non-profit organization. Not only did I learn how to prepare for my next job interview, I learned how to be a better workshop facilitator.
Immediately after your workshop I made an appointment to see a career counselor and searched for courses to become proficient in Microsoft office.
I will read the periodicals you suggested and I cannot wait to read your book. If you offer additional workshops please let me know. I would love to attend.”
“Dear Ms. Jenkins,
Thank you so much for your encouraging and inspirational words today at the Parkchester Library. Your presentation, What Were They Thinking, left me feeling more confident with moving forward with my career search.
I look forward to reading your book and will make sure not to duck out on any job interviews.”
Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us about what not to do in an interview. I found your presentation to be both informative and interesting……I just finished reading your book and found it to be very useful.” —-Carol S.
