You Can't Forget To Be "Likable"

When I have a client heading to an interview and there is one final coaching moment, I remind them to be 'likable' and it's not as easy as this seemingly common sense advice sounds.

The stress of a station visit can throw us off our game. We over focus on content, ensuring we can answer every possible question that could be asked. We forget that our ability to assimilate and interact with staff, clients, or draw audience is ultimately factored into the hiring decision.

This "likability quotation" is also applicable to your social media. One of the greatest disappointments I face as a talent manager is my clients use of profanity or publicly shaming clients, audience, or former employers that they feel have done them wrong.

I'm convinced that we could all learn from Seshmi Hayes. Her presence across multimedia platforms is a model for young MMJs, delicately managing the personal and professional.

She is blessed with an amazing on-camera presence that defines 'likability' but also professionalism. I'm absolutely sure like the rest of us she's had bad days but I've never seen one.

Few final thoughts:

1. Welcome Seshmi to WWSB Sarasota weekend mornings!
