Interviewing has changed dramatically over the years, but never more so than with the dawn of Artificial Intelligence! When we coach candidates for face to face or even virtual interviews, we help them understand the importance of non-verbal communication – both their own and those of the interviewer. How to control their own non-verbal messages. How to read those of the interviewer and leverage what those messages convey to establish rapport and to more effectively advocate for their candidacies.
Today, in the age of artificial intelligence, the quality of a candidate’s interview may well be assessed by a computer rather than a person. How, then, do we prepare candidates to sell themselves? What’s different from the more traditional face to face model? What’s the same? Does body language matter?
Linda Kent Davis will share her expertise in this area and provide you with useful tools and tips for coaching your clients to interview effectively in the Age of AI.
