What interviewers look for


Victoria Pelham, AZ Republic, May 29, 2011, says a company knows within a few minutes if you are “the one.”

Kind of like dating, I guess.

She interviewed Jessica Pierce, Career Connectors in Gilbert, AZ. Pierce’s advice? Answer questions fully. Provide interesting, real-life examples.

Be conversational—also ask questions as well as answering them.

Bring an interview portfolio—samples of work, numbers on how you did.

Know the company! Homework! Also check the company culture on Facebook or Linked In.

Dress well, sum up your strengths when you leave—without being creepy about it.

She didn’t say creepy, I did.
