Seminars on Getting Ready for College
Extra Special Mental Preparation!
The first sessions are vital to getting you mentally where you need to be for the application and interview process (as well as for life). Our consultant has more than 25 years of experience in human resources, motivational speaking, executive coaching and communications. Using her philosophy, you will develop the attitude, communication skills, and the ethics of a successful applicant and college student.
Participants will be provided with a platform to hear what is necessary, and to also practice and dialog about the specifics. What's the difference between arrogance and confidence? What's the difference between soft spoken and shy? What happens at a lunch, dinner or home interview? How do I act? And why is it important?
These sessions are geared towards answering your questions and preparing you and your parents/guardians in ways the run-of-the-mill seminars do not! You don't want to miss these sessions!
