Interviewing is like Dating…
I have said it many times and will say it again – interviewing is like dating – put your “best foot forward” and don’t book a place until you have a ring or a yes!
How often we hear from candidates – “I aced the interview” – and then we get feedback and it is contrary to what the candidate thought! Always be humble but smart; ask questions, be confident but not cocky.
And today in the WSJ (7/6/2010), there is a great column offering career advice – “relationships aren’t built in 60 seconds.” Use your network, “linkin with former co-workers and friends,” and pay attention to detail.
The job market is better than last year but everyday we must take the opportunity to improve ourselves.
