Interviewing: Robin Roberts Master Class
Filed under: Recent Posts, Interviewing, Position Searching, Observ. Trends
Posted by: site admin @ 2:05 pm

During the Pandemic quarantining I have been taking a
number of Master Classes.  At first I chose more than
a dozen about space, science, technology and economics.

The places where I was unfamiliar with the instructor
or topics were initially less of interest.
.
Then I decided to try Robin Roberts where she teaches
effective and authentic communication.  Am I surprised
by how much I believe she has something to say and 
great communication ability!  In her 6th lesson she reveals
in her unique way best practices to succeed in job interviews.
.
Some specific take-away comments were:
.
 - “make your mess your message”
.
 - “early detection is key” [for all ailments and problems]
.
 - “proximity is power” [you can influence your success by 
being in the right place at the right time.]
.
 - “Optimism is a muscle that gets stronger with use.”
.
Normal contracts for Master Classes are a bit pricey ($150- 
185 unlimited number of classes for a year   This is my 20th
class and my wife has viewed half dozen in 6 months).  There are
reasonable cancellation policies if you wish to discontinue.
See for a realistic review.
[I have searched for ways to view just this one class and
have not discovered any.  There may be a youtube file
that you can locate, however.]
