Acing interviews, cool job alert and events-a-plenty. Here's issue 71 of Own The Conversation
Happy Sunday to you all!
And welcome back to Own The Conversation.
I’ve got an inbox full of comments on last week’s newsletter. I’ve only opened the positive ones :-)
Joking, of course.
But I would like to say thank you for the continued support of Bot Jobs and this newsletter.
So anyway, let’s get on with things.

Latest Blogs and Content
Are you finding behavioural interviews a bit of a maze? After our deep dive into the S.T.A.R. technique for acing interviews, many of you requested more techniques for mastering the softer aspects of the recruitment process. I listened. My latest blog post, 'How to Ace Behavioural Interviews with the "TAILS" Technique,' offers another robust strategy for showcasing your soft skills in interviews. If you found value in understanding the S.T.A.R. technique, you'll appreciate the nuances and actionable insights the TAILS method can bring to your interviewing arsenal. Don't miss it!:
And if you want me to cover any other topics, or indeed fancy writing a guest blog yourself, then feel free to get in touch.
