You have submitted your resume for that dream job. They called you and now you have the chance to sweep them off their feet – to inspire them to greatness with summaries of your education and hands-on experience, to amaze them with tales of your previous employment, to fascinate them with your fashion sense. It all comes down to this – the interview.
Of course, you are the most qualified. But so is the guy sitting next to you, and the guy who interviewed yesterday, not to mention the three guys interviewing tomorrow.
You need to stand out amongst the crowd. How do you do that? Steal the Boy Scouts’ motto. Use the time before your interview to get prepared:
Going into the interview fully prepared will not only equip you with great responses, it will help calm your nerves and give you the confidence and assurance you need to focus your energy on helping your potential employer see that YOU are the right person for the job.
