Interviewing 101

This article in the Seattle PI serves as a reminder that it is the little things in a job interview that make all the difference.

If you aren’t making it past the first or second interview rounds, you need help figuring out what isn’t working. The No. 1 complaint given by employers in a USA Today survey about job candidates during interviews was “poor communication skills.” Career coaches can help you with preparation, practice and professional, unbiased and expert perspective. You need to be prepared for the tough questions: Why should we hire you? What is your greatest weakness? Have you ever been fired? How you answer matters greatly. The “deer in the headlights” response will only get you back out pounding the pavement.
