You just received a call from an organization that likes your resume and wants to interview you. Now what? You know highlighting your skills and experiences in the interview are important. But, what else can influence your interview, and what can you do to stand out over others and be seen as the best candidate? Holly Klingler will present "Nonverbal Perks and Pitfalls of the Interviewing Process" at the May 1 meeting.

In this program, nonverbal elements that can influence an employer's decision in the interviewing process will be explored, despite their attempt to objectively choose the right person for the job. Environment, psychology, and body language are just a few of the topics that will be discussed. The group will also examine ways you can create a more positive and confident nonverbal presence. In doing so, you will understand the process of interviewing better, and be able to communicate, both verbally and nonverbally, your skills and abilities as the best candidate for the job.

Klingler has a certification in nonverbal analysis, with an emphasis on body language, and a Master's degree in Philosophy and Information/Library Science. She frequently trains nursing, criminal justice and HR students on the importance of understanding nonverbal cues in the workforce and in their personal lives. She is currently an instructor at Bryant & Stratton College, teaching logic, sociology and critical thinking courses. In addition, Klingler has worked in libraries for 10 years and currently works as the Emerging Tech Librarian for Northeast Ohio Regional Library System.
