Interview Help

Good morning!

I hope all of you are staying warm and keeping your gas tanks filled! 

You may have received that call or email to come in for an interview!  First of all, congratulations!  But you want to present yourself in the best light possible.  My most recent sources have told me the average interview lasts about FIFTEEN MINUTES.  "All that brouhaha and years of preparation for a mere FIFTEEN MINUTES of face time???!!!" you may be thinking.  I'm not kidding.  Let us help you with the way you present yourself during that tiny segment of your life.

One of the most important factors which are considered is your ability to communicate.  That involves careful listening and clear feedback of course.  Here's a tip for now:  If you are an IMG, English is not your native language, and you are unsure of your ability to speak in English...get thyself to a language class.  Start NOW for the next year applications.  It may be a matter of one pronunciation problem only.  If people cannot understand you, you will not be hired. It's that simple.  Apart from preparing you for the interview in general, we can assess your need for a language class.

That's it for now.  Give us a call if you would like us to help you get ready for your interview.
