Even more interview advice…

The more you go on job interviews, the easier they become. For those in the workforce, interviewing skills are very important and (whether it’s right or wrong) can have a huge impact on how far you advance in your career. The best thing I ever did to help myself with interviews was to prepare my answers in advance. I found out the most common interview questions asked and prepare my answers for each.

In all honesty if you have about 5 different stories from your past work experience, you can probably use them as answers to many of the questions you might be asked. So, I would think of a story when I helped solve a problem, when I made a mistake and how I fixed it, how I dealt with an unpleasant worker or boss, etc.

Having these answers prepared made a world of difference when I was sitting at the conference table. Instead of having to spend 30 seconds trying to think of a time when I helped the company improve it’s bottom line, I already had the answer rolling off my tongue. My job interviews never were more comfortable as when I was properly prepared!

    JR: Wow!! I didn't think I was that impressive......I'd hire me!!! Thank you so much. I can't tell you how long I have stressed over the formatting of this resume, and you have done it in only a couple of days. I have been to resume writing classes and they all seem to tell you something different. I just wasn't sure which way to put it all together, but you have cut to the chase and streamlined it so well. Yes I will recommend you to others and I appreciate your offer for the interview help. Thanks again! ***When asked how she heard about Pro Resume Builder*** All I did was google search and went down the list. You were reasonably priced, some places were charging $300 to $700 and more. I think this is outrageous, especially since so many people are out of work. Price gouging is all it is. P.S. I have an interview this afternoon....... Thanks again!!
