Rhonda: Welcome back everyone, as we go into Session Two, presenting your best self. Michaela’s going to share Ian’s video to get us started here. And then Stella is going to be joining us to present. Thanks so much.

[00:00:23] Ian: What’s up guys, it’s Ian with Kentucky SPIN and these are five tips for presenting your best self. Let’s get to it.

[00:00:33] Man, where is this interview room? This is it right here.

[00:00:42] [door opens] Hey, I’m ready for, oh, is this the right? Hello? Is this the right interview room?

[00:01:00] Okay, next candidate. Come on in.

[00:01:02] [music playing from speaker] I’m here for the job interview.

[00:01:11] Uhh. Have a seat.

[00:01:31] All right, Mr., Mr. Ian, why don’t you tell me about yourself?

[00:01:37] Yes, I’m really excited about your company. I heard that it started 1812, and it also grew in the nineties exponentially. And then I also know that you guys took over a bunch of Western states and then even expanded to Mexico and Japan. And I’m really excited to take over and maybe I can even become one of the greatest employees ever of all time, become the manager and then the president and grow the company and then build a chain and spin over that. And keep growing and growing, and growing, and growing.

[00:02:06] Okay. Mr. Rosser, why don’t you tell me what your strengths are?

[00:02:10] Well, you know, for starters, I I bench press like 335 pounds, 400 pounds on the weekends. I’m also a world time champion boxer, you know. What else could I say I mean, I’m like a world-class sprinter.

[00:02:30] Okay. Why don’t you tell me what your weaknesses are?

[00:02:35] Well, I’m not really good at anything. I’m usually late, I multitask and I usually get distracted. I play a lot of video games on the job. I pick my nose and then wipe it underneath the desk, wherever I’m at. I’m rude to customers and stuff. I quit with a moment’s notice. Those are just some of the things, that’s on my weaknesses.

[00:03:12] Yeah sir, well it was good meeting you too today and you know, I’ll be seeing you soon. We’ll let you know what we decide on doing for the hiring process.

[00:03:22] All right.

[00:03:28] [knock on door] Yes, sir.

[00:03:36] Yeah, man. I was just wondering you know, what’d you think like, you think I’m hired or…

[00:03:43] Oh, well, I mean, you just left seconds ago. We haven’t even looked at all the applications yet. I’ll get back to you though, just check in. Maybe in a few days or so. All right, I’ll see you later.

[00:04:00] Alright.

[00:04:00] [knock on door] Yes, sir.

[00:04:05] Hey man, did I do a good job? You think I did a good job?

[00:04:10] Yeah, no, no, you did. You, you did a great job and you know, I’m looking forward to, we’ll see how this process unfolds. All right. I’ll see you later. All right then.

[00:04:22] All right, cool. I’ll do that. All right.

[00:04:25] [knock on door] Yes, sir.

[00:04:34] Do you have any updates?

[00:04:39] Sorry, I don’t have any update. I, I, I’ve just, it’s literally been five seconds since you’ve knocked on the door.

[00:04:46] All right guys, all jokes aside, let’s get into the seriousness of what this content is really trying to say. And these are the five things that I think are really important before you go into your session.

[00:05:03] So number one is to arrive on time and be ready to go. That’s really important for not just an interview, but also when you’re actually on the job, if you were to get it. Just consistently stay on time and go above and beyond in your duties to make sure that you keep that job.

[00:05:26] One thing I wanted to add to the, getting on time and giving yourself enough time piece, that was kind of covered in the beginning when I was walking around lost, trying to find where the interview was and I was late and it was all dark because everybody had left, that was kind of the joke. But where I was going with that is that it’s important to actually leave yourself plenty of time to get there and get there not only on time, but early, 30 minutes to an hour early so that you give yourself enough time to find parking, if there’s any traffic or if you get lost or anything like that. So that’s a really important thing to do.

[00:06:01] So I encourage you depending on how far you are from the interview location, just kind of try to plan that out and give yourself an hour extra, 30 minutes to an hour extra, to do those types of things. And so I want to make sure that I covered that.

[00:06:14] Tip number two, make a positive first impression. That’s really important. You know, a lot of people will remember your first impression and there are ways to alter that if it doesn’t go perfectly, but you still want to do the best thing you can to give that first impression so that employers remember you in a positive way. And even if they maybe decide that they can’t hire you at this particular time, or what have you, they can recommend you to someone else who is hiring, or they will go up above and beyond to look for you again if they have another need to fill in the company.

[00:06:47] So these are things to think about as you’re getting into the world of, you know, employment.

[00:06:53] Number three, it is important to show interest in the company or the job. So do the best you can to, in the interview, show that you are not just doing the job just to do it, but you are passionate and you would like to do the job. And that will make you look differently and maybe even give you an advantage when it comes to other candidates.

[00:07:12] Number four practice interview skills with friends and family, and specifically on strengths and weaknesses. And getting comfortable answering that question because in most interviews you get asked that question, what are your strengths? And what are your weaknesses? So just give it some practice and think about what are some good answers and kind of work through that with somebody that you trust.

[00:07:35] Tip five, following up is really important. And so make sure that you do that and follow up in a reasonable amount of time. I know I did the joke in the video, but, you know, give it some time, give it a few days, up to a week or so. Whatever seems respectful and, you know, reasonable and give them a call and ask to speak to the hiring manager at whatever business you’re applying for and just speak with them and see if you can figure out if your application was reviewed. If they’ve had time to, you know, interview or they’ve finished interviewing candidates, things like that to kind of get sort of a timetable on if they’ve hired someone or if they’re still looking or what have you, and follow up on the process.

[00:08:12] And also it helps to just do a thank you note, or maybe even call and give a thank you over the phone, just to let people at the company know, regardless of the outcome, you appreciate being interviewed and you appreciate being considered.

[00:08:24] Okay guys, it’s Ian with Kentucky SPIN. I hope these tips have been helpful. I hope you enjoy your session until next time. See ya.

[00:08:40] Stella: Hey everybody. How are you all doing? Welcome back from the break. And I’m telling you, I don’t know about y’all, but every time I watch Ian and his videos I just crack up. He is hysterical and the hair, I can’t get past the hair. I don’t know if you all crack up over that hair and that little wig that he’s wearing, but it’s just hysterical. So, I hope you all enjoyed that. That was just great.

[00:09:11] I am Stella beard, with Kentucky SPIN, you will probably see my hands a lot because I do tend to talk with my hands. So, I will try to keep them down low, where it won’t distract you all.

[00:09:25] But in Session Two, we are going to be talking about presenting your best self.

[00:09:33] And as I said, I’m Stella Beard. I have four children, I live in a little town called Dunnville Kentucky. You probably have never heard of that before and that’s okay. But I live on a farm with chickens and cows and my family, and so I’m excited to be sharing with you all today.

[00:09:55] My son Clayton is 24, he has a disability. And I’ll be talking a little bit about him throughout the presentation, but we are going to get started with presenting your best self. I’m going to refer a little bit back and forth from Ian’s video, because I think it will refresh your memory on a little stuff we’re going to be talking about with the PowerPoint today, but that way it’ll bring you back to what he said about it and it should make it a little easier for everyone to remember.

[00:10:28] But first of all, I love this picture with the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. And I can just remember from that show, him running around saying I’m late, I’m late for a very important date. And I know a lot of times we do seem to run late. Can I have anybody had their hand up saying, yes, I tend to run late at times. But what we want to do, Carrie raised her hand. I love it.

[00:10:56] That’s true. We do run late and every now and then it’s okay, but for an interview, it is so important, guys, that you arrive on time and be ready to go. Ian was late for his interview, wasn’t he? Because he walked in that door and guess what, there was not a soul in there. No one was there because they had been waiting on Ian and he had never showed up.

[00:11:25] So the rule is 20 minutes. Arrive 20 minutes early and that will be so great. It would be better to be much earlier than late. So getting it right on that first day says a whole lot.

[00:11:41] Kellie talked about first impressions, and if you’re late for your interview, that is not a great first impression. You never know what can happen on your way to doing it. I get up, I try to get up early. My little heater at my feet keeps going on, so I keep turning it off. I try to get up early, get dressed, get prepared. And ready for whatever my day is going to bring. There are some times though that that doesn’t always work that way and that’s okay. But please do your very, very best to arrive on time and be ready to go.

[00:12:15] Have certain things in hand with you. Have a copy of your resume, even if you’ve already sent it electronically to them, bring that resume. Also important documents you may need, you may need to ask your parents for these but like your driver’s license, if you don’t have a driver’s license, you can go to the DMV office, the department for vehicle, I can’t think of what that is now. Anyway, it’s where you go get your driver’s license and you can get what’s called a personal ID.

[00:12:48] My son, Clayton, is 24, he doesn’t drive. But he has a personal ID, which looks just like a driver’s license. Has your picture on it, has your address. It has everything that you need to show to someone that you, who you are, who you say you are. So that’s real important. So ask your parents if you don’t have that right now, and if you don’t even have a wallet or a purse, I would go ahead and recommend that you start carrying that.

[00:13:19] Go ahead and start carrying a wallet, get a personal ID, get used to keeping track of some important things like that. And ladies, if you don’t carry a purse, I would encourage you to do that. It just gives you an excuse to go get you a new purse, if you don’t have one, or borrow one from someone. But that way you can keep track of all of your personal items yourself. That’s showing independence. And I think that is really, really important that you do that.

[00:13:46] You might need a copy of your social security card too, so ask your parents for that. The other thing that might be important for you to bring to that interview is a notebook and pen. A lot of times we just whip out our phone and type, you know, type in our notes in our phone. I would recommend though, at a face-to-face interview that you keep your phone put away, so it’s not a distraction. And then use a piece of paper or even ask if you can record so you can write, so later you can go back and listen to maybe some of the things that were told in the interview that you might forget. So there are a lot of different options that you can use.

[00:14:25] And that’s okay. Just make sure that you do bring some of those important documents with you to the meeting.

[00:14:33] So again, we’re going to go back to making that positive first impression. When Ian walked in, his session his interview. Sorry, if my dogs are barking, I apologize for that. When he walked in to that meeting, to that interview he had the boom box on his shoulder and he was rocking out and all of that. That’s not a great first impression, is it?

[00:14:58] So the one thing you want to do is you want to smile. You want to sit up straight, when you sit down. You want to make eye contact with everyone that’s there and then you want to talk about your resume a little bit. So that’s why it’s good to have a copy for yourself and also an extra copy that you could present and hand to them.

[00:15:17] And you want to be upbeat about it. You want to be excited about those positive things that you’re going to be talking about, with your work experiences at the interview.

[00:15:31] You want a positive first impression, you only have one time to make a first impression. So don’t forget that, but be someone who answers questions with more than one word answers, like yeah, no, yes. Make sure that you’re specific with your question, the answers to the questions that they ask you.

[00:15:51] And someone who demonstrates that shows that he’s listening and you can share information and ideas, and that’s really, really important. Also ask questions for clarification or follow up if you need to. That is so important.

[00:16:06] And remember that nonverbal communication is critical in an interview. And what that really means is if you’re, you know, distracted by something, if you’re looking down like this and someone is talking to you, that is not good. You want to make that eye contact. You want to look them straight in the eye. You want to make sure that that posture is good, that your shoulders are back and that you have a smile on your face.

[00:16:32] And guys, even though we’re wearing masks right now, we can still smile behind that mask because our eyes say it all. When you’re smiling, even behind a mask, your eyes are dancing. So remember that, even when you’re out in public doing things.

[00:16:53] The other thing I want to talk to you about is being positive.

[00:16:57] Bee positive. I love this little bee here. Always have a positive attitude. Don’t bring up negative experiences from past jobs or volunteer positions. You must speak highly of past experiences. You want to be the kind of person that someone else wants to be around. You want to be friendly, engaging, enthusiastic. And the enthusiasm, the enthusiasm that you show and display on your interview can make the difference between getting the job and not getting the job. So being positive is so, so critical.

[00:17:37] Also a candidate who can demonstrate a positive attitude and eagerness to tackle a job will have an advantage over one who displays an attitude viewed by the employer as negative.

[00:17:50] So you may not have all the experience or qualifications for that job opportunity, but if you go in there with a great attitude, a willingness to learn, a willingness to be teachable you will make all the difference in the world that way. And it could be the answer to you, either getting the job or not getting the job.

[00:18:13] If you remember Ian’s attitude, when he was a laying, you know, on the floor and he was all negative. No one wants to be around that. And then he also took it to the extreme when he was so excited about what he knew about job and that it was created in 1912. And, oh my goodness, la la, you remember that part? That was way over the top. You got to try to find a balance there and be able to bring your best self to the table that day.

[00:18:39] So practice what you want to say over and over. The more you practice, the more competent you will feel because practice truly does make perfect. It shows that you’re progressing. It shows that you took the time to research the company, you know, that is valuable too.

[00:19:01] And also, you know, practice those interview skills with your family members or your bestie, someone that will sit there and be honest with you and ask you questions. And say, Hey, Stella, you really need to work on this, or, Hey, Stella you did that so great, I love the way you smiled when you were talking.

[00:19:24] So pretend, role-play. Go back and forth with someone that you know, and let them give you that constructive criticism that you need to make the interview process more real. That really, really will help that you’re practicing before you walk through those doors. And show interest in the company and the job. Unlike Ian don’t go in there and talk 90 miles an hour and act like you know everything.

[00:19:54] Ask questions yourself. And some of those questions could be like, you know, understanding what the company’s mission and purpose is all about. Also what do they value? You don’t want to walk into the interview if you’re going for an interview at McDonald’s, who is known for their Big Mac and walk in and talking about Burger King and the Whopper.

[00:20:16] So you want to make sure that you’ve done your research enough, that you understand the company, their policies and procedures. But also, you know, be honest and say, Hey, what would my responsibilities be during this job? Those are good questions to ask up front so then you don’t have to worry about it later.

[00:20:35] So we’re going to talk a few minutes now about your strengths and weaknesses. And those are very, very valuable things to know about yourself.

[00:20:44] And, you know, a strength is something that you’re good at. I feel like one of my strengths is I’m a singer. I love to sing and I’ve been singing the majority of my life. And so I feel like that is one of my strengths.

[00:20:59] A weakness is something that we possibly need help with, or that we struggle with. And so these are things that you need to be aware of about yourself. And sometimes one of my weaknesses is sometimes I’m not a great listener. I love to talk. So I have to learn how to not talk as much and then listen to those around me.

[00:21:23] What’s something that we did for Clayton that I thought was really, really good is we created something that we like to call an info sheet or a sheet that tells about his strengths and weaknesses. And also talks about what he’s good at.

[00:21:41] And some of the things we listed on that were things like, you know, Clayton is really good at being dependable, being on time. He is very hardworking, he’s independent, he’s highly social. So these are things that we included on kind of like his resume, that we wanted employers to know about. Some of the things that he struggles with or weaknesses we put reading, math, counting money, managing his time.

[00:22:11] So those may be things that he would need help with on the job, and so being upfront about that was really, really good. But they may ask you that. They may say, what are your strengths and what are your weaknesses? So be ready and prepared to answer those questions if they do come up in that interview.

[00:22:31] And let’s say maybe you don’t know what your strengths and weaknesses are, that’s okay. Ask someone who’s close to you, ask your parents, ask your best friend. Ask someone, if you already have a job, maybe ask them what they think your skills, abilities, and talents are.

[00:22:47] And so these are something that, this is something really important that you can do on your own. And those people that around you, because you might even be surprised some of the things that they may say about you that you had not even thought about.

[00:23:02] So knowing your strengths and weaknesses, some of these that you can consider are, are you reliable? That means can somebody count on you? Being reliable is a huge strength that is so important. And sometimes we don’t find that a lot today.

[00:23:19] Are you an effective communicator? What that pretty much means is can you talk to people? Are you pretty good at talking to people and saying what you think needs to be said? I think those are real important things.

[00:23:33] Are you an active listener? Remember I said, this is something that I struggle with. So I think it’s important to know that.

[00:23:40] Do you listen and respect different points of view? It’s not always what we think is right, but we need to be able to listen to others and see what their point of view is.

[00:23:53] And do you participate? And this means, you know, are you prepared? Are you getting involved in activities? And are you a regular communicator or do you just stand off by yourself on the job?

[00:24:04] So these are things that are so important for you to begin to consider.

[00:24:08] Some other strengths and weaknesses to consider, are you co-operative? Do you work well with other members of the team? Are you flexible? You know, that means do you adapt easily when something’s change? And if that’s something you struggle with, that would be a weakness, that will be something that you possibly need to work on.

[00:24:35] Are you committed, responsible and dedicated? Are you a problem solver? Do you know how to fix something when it’s broken or when there’s an issue? Or do you always wait for somebody to tell you to do something? This is something that we all probably could work a little bit on taking that initiative. And are you respectful? Yes, sir. No, ma’am. Yes, ma’am. No, sir. Those are things that we really need to work on some times. And instead of just saying, yeah, no. You know, having respect, it means it that’ll go a long way on the job.

[00:25:10] So knowing your strengths and weaknesses, and they sometimes take time to know them and to figure out what your strength is and what your weakness is. And it might be helpful to reach out to someone you know or trust that will help you develop a plan for working on some skills that may be, you see wow, I need help in this area. I need to work on this skillset. I might need a little more help learning how to talk to people better or learning how to listen.

[00:25:39] And then invite someone close to you, someone you know and trust to work with you on the areas that maybe you do see that is a weakness in your skill set and that you want to learn more about. But being teachable is learning new strategies and becoming a good team member takes time guys, but you all can do it, I believe in you. And I know with a little bit of time and effort, you will be able to be the best version of yourself.

[00:26:08] So know your strengths and weaknesses and put a positive spin on things. We all have weaknesses, but the key is to acknowledge your weaknesses and then have a plan. Something that I have, in my later years in life, that I’ve come to do on a regular basis now that is hard is owning up to your mistakes.

[00:26:29] Even when you mess up, don’t do the blame game. Don’t blame somebody else, that well, this is the reason why. Just say, you know what? I messed up I apologize. Can I have another chance? And that’s okay, to be able to do that. Owning up to things shows your character and it all shows also shows your maturity. It means that, you know, even though you might be a teenager, you are learning adult things right now. And I think that is so important.

[00:27:00] So you can also make your weaknesses sound like an asset to your employer. So Rhonda was talking about earlier, how, you know, with her OCD, she can become a perfectionist. Well, we would, a lot of times think, oh my gosh, that’s just, I can’t, I can’t. I can’t change my ways. I’m always going to be perfectionist.

[00:27:20] But what you can say is just, like she said, that makes her very detail oriented, and she gets the job done, right. So these are positive things or a spin that you can put on them to make things go a lot better for you. So be positive.

[00:27:37] I love that sign. We’re not seeing much sun today, but that smiling sun makes me happy.

[00:27:44] So here’s some examples, if they say, what are your strengths that you can say. You can say, well, I’m a really good listener. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a good talker too. But I think listening skills are even more important.

[00:27:59] Also a good organizer. It doesn’t make any difference if it’s organizing my closet or a trip with my family, I love all the planning, and organizing that goes into it. That’s great. So an answer, what are your weaknesses?

[00:28:17] A positive spin on it, remember, I like things to go according to my plans. So when something comes up that may not, it may make my plans go off schedule it sometimes stresses me out. But what I’ve learned about myself is that coming up with a plan B helps me a lot. So if I go ahead and plan for a potential problem, then I don’t stress out at all because I have a good idea of what to do next. It’s always good to have a plan B.

[00:28:49] Believe it or not in the session that we’re doing right now, Kentucky SPIN, thank you, Rhonda Kentucky SPIN has a plan A, B, C, and D. So what we have is if somebody’s internet goes out, we have the next plan B ready. [phone rings] We have everything, all organized, all ready and what we’re going to do in case something doesn’t work out according to plan, like the phone ringing in the background, I pushed the button to turn it off.

[00:29:17] I think that was funny, of course, that was a great timing though.

[00:29:21] So then after the interview, what are you going to do? Guess what? Write the person who interviewed you a thank you letter, making sure that you thank them for, saying thank you for taking the time to interview me, I really enjoyed meeting you. Let them know that you’re still interested in the job, possibly not as quick as Ian did, like a minute afterwards. You don’t want that.

[00:29:44] But make sure that they know that you’re still interested in the job. Let them know you look forward to hearing from them. And then don’t forget to give them your contact information again. That is so valuable and so important, your email and phone number so they have it readily at their fingertips. So that they can reach out to you when they need to. That is so very important and valuable.

[00:30:12] And believe it or not guys, people don’t write handwritten notes and you say, well, my handwriting isn’t good. That’s okay, my son Clayton doesn’t write very well. So what I do is I transcribe for him, that means I will sit at the computer and I type what he wants to say in his words. I don’t change it, to the way that I think it should sound, I type it in his words. And then he has his version of a handwritten letter and then he signs his name to it and then we mail it. I think that is just as good.

[00:30:47] So if you’re sitting there going, but my handwriting is not good. That’s okay. Have someone type it for you, exactly the way you want to say it, or if you can type it yourself, type that letter yourself. Then you sign your name to it. I think that is a perfect way of handling it.

[00:31:11] So that follow up, don’t get upset.

[00:31:15] Rhonda: Stella…

[00:31:16] Stella: yes.

[00:31:16] Rhonda: I think it’s so important to do that because just like you said, no one does that anymore and just, you know how it makes you feel if someone checks in on your or sends a text or just says, have a great day. A letter thanking somebody, we always hear negative things first, no matter what it is in our life, those things, everybody hears everywhere they go. But a thank you, and a moment that you took, regardless of how you come up with it, that you have took time to do that. And it makes them feel really well because you don’t get that anymore. And that will definitely make you stand out from everybody else. Yeah.

[00:32:02] Stella: That’s exactly right. That’s exactly right.

[00:32:04] Sorry. I was getting my dogs out of my office, for some reason they’ve just went a little crazy. That is so true, Rhonda.

[00:32:11] And a great example is yesterday we did a webinar and we got a follow up from that webinar and it was so kind, and so sweet. And the lady was saying we had such, I had such a great conversation with you all, it was so great and it just made my day. So the smallest, little thing can make all the difference in the world.

[00:32:33] So, but again, don’t get upset if you don’t hear back from them right away. Don’t walk in a minute after the interview and say, Hey, have you made a decision? Wait about a week to contact and check in on the position if you’ve not heard back from them.

[00:32:47] But then be confident about whatever has happened. Be confident and be patient. They may not let you know, but that more than likely most employers let you know right away, you know, within a week or so, whether or not you got the job or you didn’t get the job.

[00:33:06] And if you didn’t get the job, I’m going to teach you all a new word. And I want you all to say it out loud, wherever you are.

[00:33:13] It’s called Next. Okay. So on the count of three, you’re going to say Next. One, two, three. Next, that means go on to the next job interview. It’s okay. Not everything is going to be perfect, but do your best. And that is all that matters. So I am going to stop sharing my screen and we have another video for y’all.

[00:33:35] Thank you all so much for listening.

[00:33:37] Rhonda: And if you could you not start it just yet, Michaela. I just wanted to tell everyone that we’re going to have a little trivia coming up here and the prize will be bragging rights, in the class. But keep track of, see how many you all can get right here.
