How to Rock Your Next Job Interview
DearFriend,

You’ve done it! You’ve identified your passions. You’ve created a stellar resume. You’ve made contacts in all the right places. And now? Now you’ve been called in for an interview!

For a job seeker, the interview is where the magic can really happen. Not only can you start to get a real sense of the company that you’re applying to, but now is your big chance to showcase your talents and winning personality.

But the interview stage is also where mistakes can be made.

Nerves kick in. You might even say the wrong thing. Perhaps the interviewer asks a question you weren’t quite prepared for.

The interview really can make or break your chances of landing the job.

So how do you put your best foot forward?

We’ve got your back:

First, be mindful about what you really shouldn’t do! In this interview with Global News, Careers by Design Senior Coach, Lee Weisser, talks about 9 things you say in a job interview that will disqualify you for the position.

Next interviews are all about preparation, preparation, and more preparation.  So do your research carefully. Check out an hour-long video interview with yours truly on Toronto Speaks on this very subject.
