August Interview Tips

Make an example
When you’re talking about your strengths, experiences and hobbies, show examples of each point instead of just listing them and moving on. If you have exceptional attention to detail, give an example where that was an asset at your previous job. You’ll most likely be asked about your hobbies, but instead of just saying you like to read or go camping, talk about what book you’re loving right now or your last wild excursion. When you paint a picture during an interview, it’s more memorable and will stick with the person much better than listing bullet points.
