Times are tough but that is when, as we know, the ‘tough get going’. So what is the extra ‘oomph’ you are going to add to your mix to make yourself ‘stand out from the crowd’ to your next potential employer?
Are you a member of Facebook, Linkedin or any other Social Networking site? You can make them work for you by presenting yourself professionally and networking efficiently. Of about 450 resumes in the post at any one time statistics state that only one will result in a job offer – pretty poor odds!
So your professional C.V. has got you shortlisted for the job and now you have a date for your first interview. You’ve got some time before the big day so start doing your homework but “Fail to prepare = Prepare to fail” as they so wisely (yet annoyingly) say…
When you are invited back for a second interview things are looking good, but don’t lower your game you haven’t got the job yet! In fact things just got tougher!
