I know, I know, it’s not summer time. The fact that I recorded most of this video during the NBA Summer League is, quite frankly, irrelevant. If you are looking to improve your ability to interview well, and make a good first impression, then this video is just what you need, regardless of when I recorded it.
It doesn’t matter what you are interviewing for, could be a job, an internship, a volunteer opportunity, or even talking with an NBA scout, these five tips will help you get prepared and put your best foot forward.
The thing about first impressions is you only get one chance to make them. Make sure you’re prepared when your opportunity comes along.
Now go out and get ’em.
I’m so honored to be the 2016 Commencement speaker at Barstow College this Friday, May 20th at 3:00 PM PST. If you are in the area, please let me know. The event will also be live on live stream here:https://www.youtube.com/c/barstowcommunitycollege/live
I’ve had the pleasure of teaching for Barstow College since 1997. I’ve been able to teach 2-3 classes every semester for BCC since 2004. I have over 2,700 students that have gone on to do amazing things around the world! I’ve had the pleasure of teaching at 7 different community colleges and also the Univ of Kansas, Univ of Nevada, Las Vegas, Univ of Maryland, Park College, and the Univ of Texas. Over 130 college courses taught while having the OPPORTUNITY ( I hate the word “work” in reference to a job) to serve in the military on active duty and as a DoD civilian and now run my speaking business. It all started with Barstow College and I love this college and the OPPORTUNITY it provides for everyone.
It’s a long way from not graduating high school in Northern California. I tell every audience, “Life is not a SPRINT, it’s a beautiful MARATHON” Have a GREAT Day and enjoy the ride with ENTHUSIASM and OPPORTUNITY!
