Interview and Resume Tips
Interviewing is a critical process to landing the right job. The following are key points to help you develop your resume and prepare for your job interview:
• Prepare for the interview. Anticipate questions and practice your answers. Making a great first impression is important, so dress for success, be friendly yet professional and show enthusiasm.
• Be punctual. It’s best to be about fifteen minutes early. Call ahead for directions. Nothing will destroy your chances quicker than being late.
• Dress appropriately. If necessary call the receptionist and ask what the company dress code is.
• Basic hygiene is also important; have clean clothes, hair and body. Avoid too much cologne or perfume.
• Don’t create answers you think the interviewer wants to hear. Be honest. Be yourself. You don’t want to get hired under false pretenses. • Never complain about past jobs or bosses. Negative employees are difficult employees.
• Know specifics about computer software and operating systems that you have experience with and be sure they are listed on your resume. • Always ask for a business card from your interviewer. You’ll need it for a thank-you email or follow-up letter.
• More often than not, salary is not discussed at a first interview.
• A good resume will command about two minutes of a Recruiter’s time. If within that two minutes the Recruiter cannot locate the information needed to consider you for an interview, your resume will be tossed in the "not qualified" stack.
Writing Your Resume
The following tips are offered to help you produce a well-written and organized resume: • Include name, complete mailing address, telephone number with area code, and email address.
• Employment history beginning with the present or most recent job.
• Include education, awards and accomplishments.
• Include volunteer work, military experience and internships.
• Include other training and languages spoken.
• Include computer hardware and software skills.
• Outside interests.
• Use action verbs(i.e., managed, coached, sold, created, gathered, analyzed).
• Use present-tense verbs for a current job, and past-tense for previous jobs.
• Be consistent. If you spell out province names, do so throughout the resume.
• Keep indentations and other special devices consistent.
• Use a font that is easy to read. Avoid script fonts, too much bold type, or type that is smaller than nine point.
• Keep your resume on one page. If you require an additional page for awards, accomplishments, community service, etc., consider adding a half page to provide this information.
• Make sure you can perform the tasks and skills you specify. Proofing your resume is just as critical as creating it. Often times, misspelled words or other basic grammar errors can eliminate you from consideration. Always have at least two other people carefully review it.
