Past in-person event

Winning the Tiebreaker Interview: Surviving the Final Cut

Following the last, and most upbeat, in a series of interviews for a top role, you’re ready to celebrate with your favorite wine (or two)! You’ve clearly nailed it…but not so fast.  Despite the positive and informal tone of that final interview, you’re later informed that you were the runner-up.  Steve Harrison has made it his mission to help high-level career campaigners avoid job search setbacks and win the tiebreaker.  During this in-person event, you will learn:

  • How to come off as a versatile ‘T-Shaped Talent’
  • How preparing for the all-important LAST interview starts with the FIRST interview
  • How peripheral vision rules
  • How you can take control, even when you’re not really in control
  • How to construct a 10-second ‘elevator speech’ on leadership, ethics, culture and innovation
  • How the power of strategic small-talk and smart questions can create impact
