You've heard it said so many times. Making an excellent first impression is essential for a strong interview. This includes your appearance, your timeliness, but most importantly, your interviewing skills! Who really gets the job? The best qualified? The smartest candidate? Not necessarily! Most of the time, it's the person who is able to best sell his or her skills to employers in a professional and effective manner. Before heading into your next interview, spend 30 minutes using the newest technology: InterviewStream! Have a webcam? You can even conduct an interview right now! This tool provides feedback and tips of non-verbal behavior and communication missteps. If you don't have a webcam we have webcams available for you to check out and use at home.
