Interview Tips

You may have heard the saying, "The resume gets you the interview, but the interview gets you the job!", so never underestimate the importance of the interview. The interview is your greatest opportunity to sell the skills and qualities you have to offer an employer. In an interview, you want to exhibit confidence and enthusiasm about the career opportunity and demonstrate a desire to learn and work. The interview requires succinct communication of your skills and qualifications through the use of experience and examples.
