Do you want to IMPROV your chances of acing an interview?
Posted on October 9, 2016 by PSGCNJ Contributor
Have you ever been stumped in an interview and not known how to answer a question that the interviewer has posed?
If you’ve had that situation occur – and who hasn’t – you may want to take the IMPROV and Advanced IMPROV classes offered by PSGCNJ, says Marguerite Corazza, Training Committee Director.
According to Corazza, learning to improvise and listen to the interviewer’s words and questions are critical to getting past a momentary brain freeze when a tough or unexpected question is asked.
Often, she notes, job candidates may become overwhelmed during an interview when a hiring manager or a panel of interviewers fire questions, and possibly overthink their answers.
“The IMPROV classes help you to get past your overthinking, and really focus on identifying and curing some of the judgments we have going on in our heads,” explains Corazza. In fact, these courses taught her how important it is to “be in the moment and be authentic” with the person interviewing you. “You must listen to the cues and clues that the interviewer is giving you,” she stresses.
The IMPROV classes delivered by Victor Manganaro which are incredibly cost-effective run approximately 2.5 hours and help job-seekers to feel more comfortable and confident when put on the spot during an interview. He donates a portion of it to First United Methodist Church and to PSGCNJ, Corazza says.
PSGCNJ offers The Accelerated Career Training three-day course each month. The IMPROV class is an Advanced offering provided by Victor. Each class has different focuses whether it is for Solving business blockages or more effective communication or simply thinking more quickly on your feet. Please see the calendar for upcoming classes or email VIctor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

How can IMPROV help me on-the-job or in the job-search?
Posted on September 25, 2015 by PSGCNJ Contributor
Improvisation or Improv, is not about learning how to become quick-witted….it’s about learning how to build something tangible out of nothing or out of turmoil.
Does this sound like what you’re trying to do, whether you’re searching for your next job or developing a solution for a project in your present position.
One of the most important skills an employer looks for is critical decision-making. The ability to make those key decisions in the course of the day that keeps the business process flowing effectively.
An Improv setting gives you opportunity after opportunity to do just that—make a quick decision and face the consequences over and over and over again.
Where else can you practice continual decision-making in a dynamic environment without judgement and without the consequences having any long-lasting effects (except for maybe an insight or two)?
IMPROV-ing leads to IMPROVing!
The results of practicing Improv can be both amazing and surprising. It can help to identify those blind-spots that we are unaware of as well as these wonderful effects:
Victor S. Manganaro will be the guest speaker on Monday September 28th at PSGCNJ where he will lead an abridged version of his Communication-Improv workshop.
