Interviewing – The Riley Guide

Filed under: Interviewing — Larry @ 12:36 pm

You have made and followed a plan. You have searched and researched. You have applied, sent resumes and cover letters, and followed up. And now, finally, you have your reward for your efforts – a face-to-face interview with a prospective employer. This is one of the most important opportunities to make a powerful impression, to sell the product (you) to the customer (the prospective employer). It is your chance to convince them that the best thing they can do for their company is to hire you.

Quite a daunting challenge! And while there are general things that you can do to help you succeed in your interview, the challenge comes down to the point that you and your life experiences are unique, including your successes and, as well, your failures.

There is an overabundance of advice about interviewing in books and on the internet. One of the better sites that covers a variety of issues that can arise during an interview is the Riley Guide. It includes links to sites that discuss:
– Interviewing Advice
– Behavior-Based Interviews
– The 30-Second Elevator Pitch
– Addressing Problems
– Improper Interview Questions
– Are You Overqualified?
– After the Interview…
– Variations on the Job Interview
