With the economy back in full swing, and jobs falling off job land’s job trees, dropping jobs like bombs, you don’t really need to try too hard during job interviews anymore. Just kidding, it’s all lies! Jobs are still hard to find, and the economy pretty much still sucks! If you’re able to get an interview, you better study hard and be prepared for anything. What are your strengths and weaknesses? They’ll ask – well, what are they? Are you going to go classical, and spin off an old weakness you’ve overcome? Or be honest and say you may not be the best at something, but you’re willing to learn? Are you going to sell yourself as the very best candidate? You better.
Check out the tips below for an edge on the competition, because you better know you’re not the only one fiending for this position. The girl before you just hit a home run, and you’ve gotta follow it up with something better. How many times have you spellchecked your resume? Not enough. Are your references up to date and willing to talk wonders about your skills and work ethic? Take them out for lunch, and make sure they remember why you were such a good employee and why they should take the time out of their day to talk you up to a future suitor. [via]
