December Interview Tips

Bring Results
In addition to bringing examples of projects and situations that are relevant to the opening, also bring as many tangible results as you can. It’s easy to say that you turned a difficult situation into a success, but how did that success translate to sales goals, employee satisfaction scores, or increased profits? It’s one thing to say you made a client happy, it’s another to say that your work lead to a 98% retention rate. Showing tangible results backs up your examples and demonstrates that you look to translate your work into bottom line performance for your company.
