Improve Your Chances of Interview Success (Get Back in Your Comfort Zone with Style!) – Weds 7th October – 9.30am – 12noon
Applying for a job can be a daunting prospect, particularly if it has been a while since you looked for new role.  Once the excitement that you’ve secured an interview has worn off, self-doubt can start to creep in.  Whether it’s overcoming nerves or not being certain you’re wearing the right outfit, these distractions can undermine your confidence.  Regardless of your skills and experience you are giving yourself a mountain to climb at interview.
 

At Ten2Two we understand this and want to help so we have teamed up with Karen Kelsey, an NLP Life and Performance Coach of Kelsey Coaching and style guru, Carol Hanson of Want Her Outfit for an interactive workshop.  Covering topics from “Brand You” to Body Language we will offer you plenty of tips to improve your chances of securing the job you want.  www.kelsey-coaching.co.uk    www.wantheroutfit.com.
