Employer Tips for Success
9 times out of 10, a job is won or lost in the first 2 minutes of an interview. Be organized, prepared and dress for your interview. Do your homework on the organization you are seeking a job with. Most importantly, never makeup an answer. If you don’t know the answer say…I may not know, but I know how to do the research and find out.
