Make An Impression

1 Apr

It’s important to make a great impression on your first interview! Here are a few tips.

  1. I have said it before, and I will say it again. DRESS to IMPRESS! Unless it is otherwise explicitly specified, always wear a suit to an interview.
  2.  Bring your resume- I cannot tell you how many times a potential candidate walks through the door without their resume. *TIP* Always, have an updated copy of your resume in the back pocket of your car. I get it you are rushed out the door and your forget it. It happens but be prepared. If you live in a big city and don’t have a car. Save it to a google drive and run to a Staples and print it out. Again, BE PREPARED!
  3.  Sell yourself! Who better to sell you than YOU! Highlight your positives and make your negatives into positives.

Biggest Mistake College Students make on Job Interviews

8 Jan

The biggest mistake I see college students make on interviews is the lack of selling themselves.

Let’s just say  one of  your roles at your summer part-time job as a lifeguard was to make the schedule of staff each week.  Don’t just say , ” I made the weekly staff schedule” and end it there. Elaborate on the topic. Perhaps say, ” I had to troubleshoot and problem solve scheduling conflicts and make sure all staff was satisfied and kept within the departments weekly payroll budget. It was challenging at times but I was able to complete the task successfully each week ” Add to the conversation when you are on an interview, don’t ramble on but elaborate on your “bullet points”. You need to sell yourself make yourself look valuable.
