interviewing skills

Network with meaningful connections who add to your network in positive ways. Keep in mind that companies often poach employees from their direct competitors. Make sure you are being seen by the right people and if that’s someone you don’t know well, include a note. Don't make it hard for recruiters or potential employers to find have your resume or LinkedIn.

leadership skills

The quality of the creative output from your team cannot be the only thing you care about. You have to care about your team. The sooner you realize they don’t work for you, you work for them - the better the work will be.

presentation skills

Great presenters always do these 5 things:

1. Consider their audience - great presenters determine who they are talking to and how much they know about the subject to establish the purpose of the presentation.

2. Organize their thoughts - they focus on delivering three main ideas that begin with a solid opening and end with a strong close, including a call to action.

3. Channel positive energy - they maintain an open and confident body posture, use gestures to emphasize their points and show enthusiasm with facial expressions.

4. Connect and engage with listeners - they use eye contact to keep listeners engaged and to maintain a conversational feel.

5. Practice constantly - they are familiar with concepts to ensure a smoother delivery and focus on being themselves while getting they ideas across.

salary negotiation skills

Negotiation in the workplace is a skill that comes with practice and experience. That being said, know the value you're bringing to the job because if you don't, how is your potential employer meant to know it? My number one tip is being uncomfortable with being uncomfortable and to not take anything that happens personally. Rather, look at it as a transaction that has to happen.

team work

Get to know your colleagues and their personalities. This will inform the way you communicate and collaborate with them. Ask them early how they prefer to communicate, receive feedback and check-ins.
