Interview Prep & Negotiating
About this FieldTrip
Join in as Alexa Loken, founder of Loken Careers, talks through how to best prepare for an interview, and later negotiate your offer package. She’ll also touch on how to most effectively network during COVID, as connections have always been a great way to land a new role. Tune in as Alexa showcases how to effectively practice for interview questions, hone your elevator pitch, learn what you should (and shouldn’t) do during negotiations, and practice via informational interviews, with all tips based on current best practices from her time as both an entrepreneur, business professor, and corporate career coach.
