Episode 82 - Interview Skills w/ Dr. Rocio Rosales

At some point in everyone’s life, you will be forced to sit through a job interview. This modern rite of passage may well spell the difference between being employed and being flat broke. This week, in our most meta episode ever, we interview Dr. Rocio Rosales on the topic of interview skills. Will a firm handshake, fancy suit, and boastful claim that your biggest weakness is your lack of weaknesses give you the edge you need to succeed? Or is there more to interview skills mastery than a winning smile? Our resume is up to date and scented for that little something extra.

Don’t forget, to celebrate Autism Awareness Month, all throughout April, a portion of proceeds from CE processing fees will be donated to the New England Center for Children, a globally acknowledged school for individuals with autism and a home of research and training in the field of behavior analysis.

Episode 28 - FCT

SPOILER WARNING! 

FCT is superior to many other treatments.  If you want to know which treatments, you'll have to go 5 rounds with Diabolical Dr. D in the ring, suffer through Rob's snooty New England anecdotes, and share your favorite foods to eat while reading journal articles with Jackie.  Only then will you have the joy of hearing a discussion about Carr and Durand and the epic Tale of FCR.  And you won't even need to use an FCR response (or should that be FC response?) to witness the heartwarming return of the lag schedule.  This podcast is like EZ tasks 100, folks!
