Interviewing Tip of the Month: Be Yourself!
You've made it to the interview stage -- congratulations! To make a great impression in the interview, and be sure the job is right for you, always be yourself:

1. Being authentic makes you stand out. If you try to be who you think the interviewer wants you to be, you run the risk of coming off as fake or just trying too hard. If you're relaxed and present yourself honestly, the interviewer will find you more relatable, open and memorable.

2. It's your job to make sure the opportunity is a good fit for you. If you try to change yourself to match the requirements of the job, you may undermine the chances of long-term career success and happiness with the employer. Be true to yourself. If the job isn't right for you, admit it -- and continue your search elsewhere.
