And we're back!

I took a hiatus.  I didn't know if I wanted to come back.  But then life picked up and got really interesting.  So, with that, here is what's coming.

The Lost Art of Interviewing  | Thursday, September 23, 2010 | Noon EST | 9:00am PST

You’ve used all the tools at your disposal, networked until your hands were sore, revised your resume a hundred times, survived the online application process, passed the personality assessments and FINALLY landed a job interview. But did you save enough energy to make the most of this rare occasion?

Let’s face facts – with competition for jobs at an all-time high, how you perform during your interview can either be your shining moment or result in complete self-destruction. The bad news for many is that interviewing is the weakest link in their career arsenal. The good news for you is that we’ve assembled a terrific panel of experts who can offer pragmatic advice and answer your most common questions, including:

How do I best prepare for an interview?
What are today’s employers likely to ask?
What can I (the applicant) ask during the interview process?
What are some of the more common mistakes to avoid?

Moderated by JobAngels Founder Mark Stelzner, our panel will address these items and more, including an opportunity for you to pose your own questions directly to our experts. Please welcome recruiting and HR experts Jennifer McClure, Deirdre Honner and John Nykolaiszyn as they help you rediscover the lost art of interviewing. And if you're on Twitter, please follow our hashtag #voc10 to participate real-time with your fellow attendees. This is sure to be a popular event so sign up today!

If that isn't enough,  I have two fabulous books to read and review.  I first have Surrounded by Geniuses by Dr. Alan S. Gregerman.  The book looks fantastic.  I would like to find my hidden genius.  It's hiding.  :)  

The second e-book is by Chris Ferdinandi.  His book Culture Convo: A beginner's guide to employer branding and social media is fantastic.  I have been through it twice.    It's so good that it deserves its own post, and it will get it.  After Thursday.  

Stay tuned!
