Last week we had a guest speaker come in, James Levin who runs an organization Job Search Therapy. James is a Talent Acquisition Specialist among other things. Hearing James talk and describe that there are companies out there that help creative find work and help promote themselves better is wonderful. We’ve all had moments where we feel we’ve hit a slump or we worry and question why an interview didn’t go as planned, and James is the person who can help us improve our overall presentation.
James mentioned a few valuable points that I walked away with. One is the conversational pivot, and the second being elevator speech. James broke these down in a very simplistic way, which looking back now I don’t know why I imagined them so daunting and hard. It was definitely a worthwhile experience listening to James and it’s good to know there are people out there who can help us creatives if we ever hit a rut in the future.
