The New Science of Interviewing

Anna Papalia, CEO & Author of Interviewology

Job interviews determine the future of individuals and companies, so why don’t we have a common language to discuss and understand them?  In our opening keynote, hear Anna Papalia, author of Interviewology: The New Science of Interviewing, share her research on how we interview and the solution she found: a standardized language that helps those on both sides of the table to name and understand their unique interviewing tendencies.  In this session Papalia will share her own inspiring story of how an interview changed her life and give examples from her own clients with practical and pragmatic tips to help us solve the interviewing problem.  This is the session that job seekers and hiring managers alike need in 2024!
