Both sides have a need. Companies need a solid employee and employees are looking for a meaningful opportunity.

Hiring is tough for companies, even though they seldom talk about it. Recognize your value and bring your best professional self to determine if a role is right for YOU.

The #1 way I prepare for interviews

The way I prepare fore interviews is to develop a "story bank." These examples should be in your resume, and in the interview be prepared to elaborate...

Interviews will often have "tell me about a time when ___ " type questions. Write out beforehand a few scenarios that could potentially fit those types of questions. And if you don't have an experience that fits their question, it's totally acceptable to say something like, "While I don't have an example of an experience like that, if I did, I would do [x,y,x]."

So when one of these questions comes out, just pull out a story from the bank - it's even possible to tell a story from the bank if it's not related to the question being asked.

How do you prep for #interviews? #JobSearch #NextJob

Employers and interviewers are looking for problem solvers, or people with a problem-solving mindset.

What does this mean to a boss? They want someone that will try out reasonable solutions to issues on their own rather than always depending on colleagues or managers.

Just in the past two days, 75% of the interviews we have scheduled and confirmed for hourly positions at my company have no-call, no-showed the appointment.

I understand that companies have a part to play in this too. However, you don't have to be very good to be better than the folks you're competing against for a job. Showing up seems to be half the battle or more. And if you don't want to show up or think the job is not for you, a simple phone call or text as a courtesy goes a long way.

Employers will remember you, and perhaps reconsider you when something more appropriate comes along. #ghosted #interviews #nocallnoshow #interview

Preparing in advance is the key. Prior to the interview have a family member or friend role play to ask you similar questions you would feel most uncomfortable with so that you can do your best during a real time interview. Remember to answer with a response that is similar or relative to that same scenario or question being posed. Breathe in between your sentences calmly. Focus on the interviewers eyes so they hear and see the sincerity.

Rosa, you could be right in being prepared by rehearsing the interview with relatives & friends. However, I still believe it would be quite different when doing with the actual hiring manager. I just don't know what & how they think about me. The interviewers might smile and say my resume looks interesting. But they still seemed to be in doubt & kept asking me more questions about my work experiences. Also one time I did an interview at CI Actuation. I remember the hiring manager asked what will I do within next 5 years. I just did not expect that kind of question. My mind just went blank. Lastly I just answered not sure.
