This #Watch is longer than usual, with a lot of options for you to choose among as you work on your Performance Review.

I created a playlist Final Exam Resources on Performance Reviews, comprised of three short courses, 31 videos total. If you watched everything, it would take 1h 21m (but I really don’t expect you to watch every minute of every video).

One of the most important aspect of a performance review or job interview is to be confident. Although you might have the skills to do the job to no one will know it unless you tell them. Confidence is the ability to sell yourself to the interviewer. If your lucky the interviewer will throw “softball” questions but if you really want the job you’re going to have to do most of the work.
