The 2-Minute Tip for Success
In order to succeed in your career there are a few things that help make that process easier. Locking down the career you desire goes far beyond the resume. Given the chance to land a great opportunity you have to be prepared to sell yourself and your skills. Confidence plays a big role in professional advancement! How is your confidence and how well are you selling that to your potential employer?
Have you ever been asked what you do for a living and find that you stumble around a bit before you get to the heart of your work? To quickly and clearly communicate the importance of your job, prepare an "elevator speech". An elevator speech is a brief message that can be easily communicated in 20 to 30 seconds, the average time it takes to ride from the bottom floor to the top floor in an elevator; hence its name.
A lot of time and energy is spent on the interview process. One thing a lot of people underestimate and often overlook is the "phone interview process" and its importance! In some cases, you must ace a phone interview before given the opportunity to have an in person interview.
