your best career opportunities
Job interviews begin (and sometimes end) with a job search. Even if you
already have an interview lined up, you should sharpen your job search skills.
You might decide during your interview that you wouldn't really enjoy working in
that position. Or you might not get that particular job. You are also in a much
stronger position if you can line up more than one interview, particularly if
you have more than one job on offer.
Most workers change jobs quite frequently throughout their careers. It's best to
be ready to take advantage of any great opportunity that comes along. If you
haven't yet decided upon a specific career path, consider taking some career
assessment tests and learn more about yourself. Your job search will be more
successful if you know what you're looking for in an ideal job.
There are many wonderful online resources to help you find the right fit. Do
some surfing, check out the job posting sites, and decide on a few positions
that you'd like to apply for. Then prepare and submit your resume. You don't
want to prepare your resume first, because you'll be more successful if you
customise it to match the specific job for which you are applying. Having a
razor-sharp resume, designed specifically to highlight your abilities related
directly to the position in question, will immensely increase your odds of
getting the interview, and getting the job!
