Standing out during an interview increases your chances of getting a job offer


Standing out during an interview means you’re leaving an unforgettable impression that can lead to your hiring.


In a competitive job market, many candidates who share similar qualifications are vying for the same opportunity. But you can gain an edge by doing something to distinguish yourself from other applicants and make a positive impression during a job interview, whether it’s in person or online.


On May 18th The ACB Wellness Resource Centre will have returning facilitators


Jessica Ojiaku and Eunice Worifah share tips, tools and key points on how you can stand out in your interview.


This collaboration with Canadian Women of Colour Leadership Network is a continuation of the work to develop socioeconomic opportunities within the ACB community and provide career and professional development.


Join our session May 18th, 2022 from 6pm -7:30pm on the zoom platform and streaming live to the ACB Wellness Resource Centre Facebook page


*Please note that this session is opened to ALL ACB community members regardless of gender identity*
