Interview dos and don’ts

by Jan Schroder

With job seekers still facing post pandemic challenges, how does a candidate make a compelling case for hire?

A popular question, “Tell me about yourself,” is not an invitation for reciting your resume; rather, it is an opportunity to be memorable.

CNBC offers pointers on nailing the all-important interview:

• Get personal – tie in an accomplishment with a lesson. What did you learn from a given experience?

• Be interesting, not boring. People remember stories, not statistics.

• Highlight your purpose and your passion. What motivates you?

• Be authentic – expose the real you, not someone you think the interviewer wants you to be.
