Presented By
Danny Rubin

Communication skills are critical to any career. That’s because people who write and speak with confidence are able to move ahead faster than the competition.

Join UVA alumnus and author Danny Rubin for a practical webinar on how to impress an employer at different stages of the hiring process. Danny will walk you step-by-step through an authentic email in which you ask for an informational interview. Then, he will show you a memorable approach to a thank-you note. Finally, Danny will discuss smart, outside-the-box questions you should ask during the interview itself (whether it’s an informational interview or a “real” one).

Don’t miss the chance to become a stronger job candidate!
