We all know that in today’s job market the competition is fierce, so you need to ask yourself, how can I separate myself from the competition?
Knowledge is Power!
The more you research your industry, understand the trends in the market, you’ll have the leverage you need to stand out from other candidates, and be the “expert” in your field.
Arrogance or Confidence?
No one likes to hear how wonderful you are or how much money you deserve to make. “The what’s in it for me” attitude will crush you during an interview. Talk about your accomplishments, when asked. Hiring Managers like to hear about how you collaborated with others in order to save a company money or complete a project successfully. They want to know that you’re a team player but at the same time have the ability to work independently. Always demonstrate confidence not arrogance.
Have a Personality!
Don’t be a stiff! Seriously! Find something in common with the interviewer that you can make small talk about. Also, you don’t want to be over the top, either.
Hope these few tips will help you beat your competition!
