Q – How much time do you have to make a great impression?
While you might think you have at least ten minutes, and hopefully sixty minutes, studies show you really have as little as one-tenth of a second to a full seven seconds.
Q – So, how can you best impress an employer in a short amount of time?
Our Three-Step Interview Approach gives you the best shot:
- Step 1: Prepare – Become knowledgeable about the employer and demonstrate how you fit their needs.
- Step 2: Practice – Get comfortable responding to commonly-asked questions, questions specific to the job, and questions that are particular to your work history, per your resume.
- Step 3: Assess – Do a mock interview with an expert who can target specific tips to enhance your performance, and learn about your ‘blind spots’ (we all have them!) that can keep you from getting an offer.
