June 9, 2015



What Every Employer Wants
Instead of spending time and energy preparing answers for every imaginable interview question, ask yourself: "If I were the hiring manager, what are the qualities I'd need to see in a person before I’d be willing to say, 'You're hired'?"

Work these five qualities into your self-description and prepare examples that demonstrate you have them.

  4. Adaptability to changing technology
  5. Willingness to go above and beyond
