Interviewing Tip of the Month: What's Your Style?

Although you may desperately want a job, never grovel! Instead, exude confidence. You know you can do the job; make sure the interviewer believes you can, too. The secrets to building interviewing confidence? Well, there's really no secret at all:

  1. Do your research--know the company, the available position, and your "elevator pitch" inside and out.
  2. Practice, practice, practice--in a mirror, or with a trusted friend/family member.
  3. "Fake it 'til you make it"--feigning confidence will actually build the real thing!
