Employer Tips for Success 

 

 

Prepare your presentation.  Not only should you be prepared for their questions; you must also treat this interview as an advertisement for YOU.  Only you know where you excel, why you are capable of handling this position and what they can expect from you when you come on board.  Think of the things of which you are most proud.  Achievements, projects, work habits developed, compliments from management, awards, relationships made.  Be prepared to cite specific examples of accomplishments and how your specific experience can help the company solve some of its problems.  Concentrate on your most recent positions, but don’t neglect your early career.
