Employer Tips for Success
I had a interview that I personally felt was going to change everything for me in a positive way. I got to the interview to see that I had 3 interviewers at the same time…..extremely intimidating! The questions that were asked, had nothing to do with the line of work involved, so naturally I was nervous. At the end of the day, I bombed out the interview and I left there knowing the job was not going to happen for me to say the very least!
What I have learned from this situation is to be yourself. There are several components to interviewing someone. There is education, experience, and qualifications, all which is very important. But know this, the applicant has the job of selling themselves to the employer. Show your positive, inner-self, and I promise it will take you a long way. When credentials balance out between applicants I guarantee personality will be a factor in the decision in the end.
