This informative handbook lets a first-time job hunter know what is needed to land a job.
It shows how to find information about a company, gives examples of resumes, explains how to get an interview, discusses behavior during the interview, and suggests follow-ups. Comprehensive, thorough, and reassuring. The purpose of Your First Interview is to ease anxiety at a time that’s usually characterized by sweaty palms and pounding hearts.
Whether unemployment is at a record high or record low and the country’s at war or at peace- these factors have little to do with the task at hand- the fact that the reader is facing their very first job interview and they need to get ready.
Teaches you how to take charge of the interviewing process-to make sure you’re sold on the company, and to assure that the company is sold on you.
