I have created these twelve commandments of interviewing to better prepare you for your interview. The caveat is the most important part of landing a job is selling yourself in the interview. Unfortunately, most people do a very poor job. When candidates do devote any time to employment preparation, it is usually spent on developing and sending out their resume. However, as you will soon learn, resumes don’t get you hired. Instead, human resources often uses your resume to screen you out!
As a recruiter with over 23 years of staffing experience, I have filled many hundreds of jobs worldwide for such clients as ITW, Intermatic and Wrigley Company. During that time, I have accumulated many tips and tricks. For example, there are special ways to answer interview questions that will increase your probability of employment.
Every month for the next 12 months, I will share some of my interview knowledge with you. Though every job, employment situation and staffing circumstance is different, these interview tips will apply to a wide range of jobs and employment opportunities. Think of them as interview gold!
Please check in every month for a new interview tip. I hope you enjoy them all. – Scott Sargis
