Do You "Wow" Employers With Your Great Interview Skills?
Published on July 3, 2008
A resume is important in getting that all-important "interview." After you get the interview, an entirely new set of sills I needed to make the transformation from beach bum to gainfully employed. Most of us know that one should not chew bubble gum and blow bubbles during an interview - unless, of course, the company for which you are interviewing is the Wrigley gum Company. Even then, it would be risky and not recommended for the faint of heart. One of the important lessons to learn is: what is appropriate when applying to one prospective employer may not be appropriate for another interview. Consider the company and the position for which you are applying when making decisions about your attire and approach. A black leather flight jacket and boots (thought totally cool) are probably not a good idea, unless you are applying to Harley-Davidson. Even then, if the job your eagerly anticipate is vice president, I would strongly consider wearing a Ralph Lauren Suit (ok, even Brooks Brothers).
Accomplishing the impossible only means the boss will add it to your regular duties. -- Doug Larson
