June 18, 2010, Newsletter Issue #35: Assess Yourself

Tip of the Week

An interview is all about selling yourself. And before you can convincingly do this, itís important to take stock of the unique talents and abilities that set you apart from the rest. Simply being confident isnít enough. If all you have to offer is a cocky demeanor, without the ability to adequately verbalize why youíre the best person for the job, youíre lost.

One of the best tips for interview success is to make a list of your career accomplishments, and the challenges youíve overcome. Use this information to write a brief statement about yourself that you can use in conversation. Avoid getting into lengthy descriptions, and above all write it in a manner that you can deliver without it sounding dry or rehearsed. To some, this may come naturallyóbut to others, it can take great effort. But the effort you extend now will pay off tenfold if youíre rewarded with a job offer.
