Being able to answer these questions will take a little work.  You need to practice your answers and make sure you add for each question an extreme adjective.  Use the most, largest, hardest, best, and even worst examples in your history  as it is telling about the depth of your experiences.

The job of the resume is to talk for you, sell you to the recruiters, and Land you the interview!  So now that you have the interview, we should not rely on experience to land you the job.

 

Besides your experience and skills...why would you hire you for the position?  What makes you the best candidate for the job?  If everyone else had more experience and skills than you -- what strengths and competencies would separate you from the competition?

 

Do yourself a favor and reflect on the above three questions.  If you don't know why you are the best candidate how will the interviewer know?

 

Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!
