Resume Tip

When creating a resume, applicants should instead look to include the following: name, contact information, career focus, key skills, education, and relevant experience.

Experience can take forms such as full-time or part-time work, internships, volunteering, club membership, leadership roles, and class projects.

Do not put unnecessary items such as: “References, high school diploma, and associate degree if you have a bachelor's degree, street address, picture of yourselves, and irrelevant information (not related to the position). #AWU #disability #resume.

What Do You Do If You Are Asked An Irrelevant Interview Question?

Redirect with Diplomacy:

In some cases, redirecting the conversation may be necessary to maintain the interview's focus. Politely guide the interviewer back to relevant topics while acknowledging the importance of addressing their concerns. You can frame your redirection diplomatically by saying, "I appreciate your curiosity about that topic, and I'd be happy to discuss it further at another time. For now, I'd like to delve into how my background aligns with the requirements of the role." #AWU #disability #interview

"Interview Tip" Clarify and Seek Context

Before jumping to conclusions about a question asked you during an Interview and its relevance, consider asking for clarification or context.

Politely inquire about how the question relates to the role or the company's objectives. This not only demonstrates your critical thinking skills but also shows your interest in understanding the interviewer's perspective. Something that can definitely set you apart. #AWU #disability #Interview

"Interview Tip"

While a potential employer does want someone who is familiar with their potential responsibilities, they don't want someone who will be too comfortable. "Comfortable" can be cause for concern.

Comfortable can make the interviewer think the candidate isn't looking for a challenge or isn't looking to grow in their job. It signals the person is looking to coast.

While you should express your ability to perform the job tasks, employers also want to hear that you're looking for something that will take you out of your comfort zone and challenge you, at least a little bit. #AWU #disability #interview
