General Application & Interviewing Tips

  • Proofread before you hit submit

    Always check your resume for spelling and punctuation. In addition, check your file before uploading to make sure the file you are attaching is your updated resume and not another file from your personal documents/downloads.  We want to evaluate your experiences!

  • Phone interview tips

    If you are interviewing by phone, secure a time and space where you can focus on the conversation. This will limit distractions for you and for the interviewer. It’s also helpful to jot down your thoughts in writing, especially if you get nervous in interview situations.

  • be specific about your accomplishments

    In your resume and during your interview, provide specific examples and quantifiable results about your work style and achievements. These help the interviewer better evaluate whether you’re right for the job … and if the job is right for you. Avoid general terms like “dedicated,” “loyal,” and “dependable,” and instead share examples of dedication and dependability -- they will be more memorable and help you stand out to the recruiter.

  • What to include in your Resume

    Summarize your work experience in a resume or other reference document that includes dates and positions held. It can be hard to remember those dates without notes. Also list education, training, skills, and certifications, if they are relevant to the target job. The job posting can be helpful in connecting your background to the requirements.

  • Your Email Address Matters

    If your personal email address is not professional (e.g., “keggerboy01”), create a new one for your job search with the many free email providers out there. Any combination of your first and last name is generally a good idea..
