Engage the Likability Effect in the Job Search

Research indicates that likability can be equally if not more important than competence when hiring managers are making decisions. Likability also helps you succeed once you land the job: Likable employees get more assistance and earn more promotions. In this course, you can learn simple techniques for making yourself a more appealing candidate by shifting behaviors that influence how others perceive you, ultimately becoming more likable to your network and the decision-makers in the hiring process. Dr. Dawn Graham—career director for the Executive MBA Program at the Wharton School and a former recruiter—helps you tap into and enhance your natural likability, build your network, and start off your new role on a positive note.
