Hi,


My best advice during an interview is to demonstrate your specific actions at work, and what the results you achieved. Actions and Results are exactly what a hiring manager are looking to buy as they search for someone to hire for the job they have described. Avoid generalizations like "Team work is good" and instead, offer an instance where you had to work as a team and what the results of those actions were.

Hi,
A truly great question...as a former Recruiter, Small Business Owner and Interviewer I would say Confidence...the ability to show that you can and will do the job regardless of your experience or lack of experience. I was once hired for a job that required a Master's degree and I only had 2 years of college and an Associates degree! I went in confident and knowing that I could do the job and I did a great job of showing my future employers this.
Good luck! :)


Thank you! I think I can definitely use and apply this! Johana T.

Ali’s Answer

Attentiveness, eagerness, interest in the job, eager to learn, quick learner


Hi Ali. Could you elaborate on your answer? Why do you feel those qualities to be most important, and how can someone radiate those aspects of their character in a somewhat restricted interview setting? Students could really benefit from your unique perspective as a consultant at a prestigious firm like Deloitte. Feel free to edit your post accordingly! On behalf of the young people benefiting from your answer and the entire CareerVillage community, thank you for answering this student’s question! -David Ohta David Ohta COACH
