Tip #9 Communication
Communication is key to getting a job! Here are a few things to keep in mind.
- You need a resume. Nothing fancy but everything has to be spelled correctly! Keep it simple, clean and to the point.
- Eye contact is important during interviews.
- Ask questions, it shows interest to the interviewer.
- Your cloths and appearance communicate before you even speak. Dress appropriately but don’t over do it.
Make sure to answer questions clearly and to the point but try to add value to the answer. The value added is in bold.
Example: The interviewer asks “Have you ever had to utilize Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets ?” Your answer should be “Yes I have, during my time at _______ (whatever previous employer) I regularly used and designed spreadsheets for numerous reasons including inventory tracking and accounting. In addition to Microsoft Excel I also have experience with Microsoft Word, Powerpoint and outlook.
