17 May May 14: Acing the Phone Interview Workshop
On Saturday, May 14th Heidi had the great privilege and pleasure to deliver a workshop for Dress for Success in a beautiful space provided for the occasion by the School of Music at the VSO. Heidi designed the workshop, called ‘Acing the Phone Interview’, to help prepare attendees for phone interviews by knowing what to expect and how to put their best foot forward.
The workshop included a variety of practical lessons, including how to research a company to understand its business and culture and your potential fit, knowing what questions will likely be asked and how to prepare your answers, coming up with your own questions for the interviewer, and other tips for how to be ready for the call. Attendees got an opportunity to practice preparing their own questions and took turns interviewing each other. Throughout the day, there was a lot of time for q + a, storytelling, and additional insight from the group.
The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
