The Expert's Corner: Job Search Advice from HR Professionals

One of the most common mistakes of candidates I have interviewed is attitude about what they are trying to accomplish.  The interviewee is not just "trying to get a job" as much as he/she is needing to communicate to the interviewer the skills and personal attributes they have that will benefit my company/program/job position.  And, I am always interested in raw enthusiasm.  I'd rather have an energetic, motivated, communicative, attractive human being than a experienced, genius with an ugly attitude about work and life.
