Recruiting in a recession can be difficult. We understand that and empathize with all of our customers whose budgets have been cut. There still remains a problem. If you stop advertising your open positions, the longer they'll be open. So we've come up with a few options that will help you recruit during a time when your budgets are tight, save you a little company cash and not to mention a headache for you.

1. Getting Most Value Out of Current Advertising.
Oddly enough the first place to start is to look at what you're currently doing. Writing a good job description and being clear about what the job offers and what you expect will help immensely as well. Learning how to recruit candidates in tough economic times will also help you overcome objections from great candidates that maybe seem less interested. If you're currently utilizing www.EmploymentGuide.com or any one of our products you can call one of our advertising consultants on how to optimize what you currently are using. We have job posting templates and can assist in wording and information that will help you attract the candidates that you are looking for. You can also check out ERE for the latest tips on advertising and recruiting to help you as well.

2. Job Fairs.
Try a community college career fair or participate in an Employment Guide Career Fair. This is a great way to piggyback off of the host's advertising and attract hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of candidates all at once. Not only that but you can pre-qualify candidates right at the event. We've experienced several times where a company hires a job seeker on the spot at our job fairs.

3. Diversity and Niche Publications.
For example: The Veterans Transition Guide. This is a quarterly publication that we send out to ex-military personnel who are finished with their duty and want to move into civilian life. This publication has a shelf life of about 4 months and can help fulfill your diversity requirements. We've gotten some great feedback on the quality of candidates - after all our troops are trained to a high standard and it's also a great way to give back to the soldiers who serve our country. Not only that but advertising starts as low as about $150 a month. It includes print and online advertising too. Not too bad.

4. Advertising Showcases or Packages.
For example: right now in the Carolinas we're doing a healthcare showcase. We do these occasionally to get a group of industry specific jobs in one place and attract qualified candidates for that industry. Because there is such a draw for recruiters we're able to lower your cost and bundle products together. This particular showcase is going to go on for 5 weeks and feature your company. We'll utilize not only The Employment Guide Print publication but also www.EmploymentGuide.com and HealthCareerWeb.com as well. You can take advantage of a showcase like this one, bundle products together and save yourself some money in the budget. Right now our Healthcare Showcase can help attract medical professionals for you at up to a 70% discount.

5. Get Online & Network.
Surprisingly enough just your company's presence online can help you recruit. Utlize social media outlets like Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter to recruit and get people interested in what you're hiring for. There are also industry sites like HealthCareerWeb.com where you can post community events or connect with candidates through the profiles or forums. Jim Stroud's "The Recruiter's Lounge" has some great tips for sourcing resumes online.





Any other low-cost or free tips on how you can better your recruitment during a tough economic situation? Got a question about what you've read or want more information? Leave it in the comments or email us at

Talk about the economy and recession can get pretty negative. There have been a lot of cutbacks, layoffs and even some hiring freezes going on and it leaves a lot in employment left uncertain. So what do you do if you feel your job might be in danger of one of those cutbacks? Well sometimes being prepared means anticipating the worst. For some people that means discreetly looking for another job as a precautionary measure.

U.S. News and World Report published an article on How to Find a Fallback Job that provides tips on how to do just that. They offer some great points on how to be discreet and to not give your current employer a reason to cut your position all the while remaining prepared in case that happens. There's a lot to be said about being prepared but don't let it get to you either. Staying positive also has a huge impact on your employment and job hunting situation.

So sound off Atlanta - what do you think? Give us more of your tips on being prepared!

Colleges Searching Social Networks for Enrollmentphoto by Jonathan Pobre

The answer may be surprising. Or it may not. Social Networking is at an all time high and leading the pack are high school students are teenagers across the country. Popular sites like Myspace and Facebook allow anyone on their networks to post text, videos and photos to their pages, walls and on their friends pages. This has resulted in some less than spectacular backlash for these students when looking into colleges.

According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, 10% of college admissions reps are looking at social networking profiles when making an enrollment decision. Of those colleges making use of the online information, 38% said that what they saw "negatively affected" their views of the applicant.

Job seekers have recently been in the same boat. Local media have named the trend "digital dirt," however I think it goes beyond the bad.

Everyone is quick to point fingers and join the blame game when incriminating evidence is found online. The fact of the matter is that for something to make it online, it had to be put there by a person. If you are controlling what is put online, you have nothing to worry about.

The great thing is that there are many things that you can begin to do today to create a positive personal brand today to make it easier to get a job tomorrow.
  • Smart Social Networking - Use these networks to meet people at organizations that you cannot contact normally. Cultivate relationships with these people through asking questions, complimenting their work and engaging in their conversations.
  • Blogging - Become a thought leader for a niche that you specialize in. If you are a painter, load up photos and tell stories of some great houses, layout or fences that you have worked on. Upload how-to videos or tips to more effective painting.
  • Media in your resume - Robert Scoble recently noted that out of 200 applicants for a job with a tech company that only one had a link to their site included within their resume. If you need to get a point across, link to it!

Whether you are a student or a job seeker, companies and universities are looking you up. What are they going to find? The answer is what you put there.

Although the data was taken just prior to the burgeoning financial crises, the Pittsburgh Metro in September saw an increase of over 7,000 jobs from September of 2007. How the job picture will look over the next two months in our area is anybody’s guess, but multiple points of interest have been expressed by area economists. Articles in the Post Gazette and the Tribune-Review show different levels of optimism. We at the Employment Guide saw a relatively strong September but experienced a softening in October compared to a year ago. Remember, we are solely dependent on the placement of help-wanted ads or help-wanted Internet text postings. Our prediction, based on our direct business experience, is that we will see a moderate drop on total jobs in the Pittsburgh Metro when the October numbers are released in another month. As noted in all of the area economist quotes, our strength in healthcare will be the main mitigating factor of how many jobs are lost. Retail is one area being negatively affected in Pittsburgh, although with the opening of Nordstrom and LL Bean the amount of weakness will be diminished at least in the near term.

Last Friday, October 24th, Patrick O'Brien took the stage at the National Hispanic Corporate Achievers Diversity Job Fair Awards Luncheon to speak about Recruitment Economics. Patrick hit on points ranging from putting faces to top tier employees to finding out the characteristics that make them excel to recruiting in a recession. Below is the video from his talk:



The talk gives a lot of points and highlights some great themes and concepts that can help any business that takes the next step and applies them.

It also show job seekers how to excel and show companies that they are the person they need to hire right now! With the economy still slow to recover, it is a risk every time a company brings in a new team member. You need to give them every reason to gamble on you.

Other highlights of the event included:
  • Massey Services being names Diversity Employer of the YearMassey Services at National Hispanic Corporate Achievers Diversity Job Fair
  • A Job Fair that brought over over 500 diverse job candidates
  • Talent Management Practices by Mario Delanoy

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions
Definitely practice beforehand with a list of standard interview questions. As weird as it may feel to practice in the mirror or with a friend beforehand it will help you feel more confident and know your responses when asked a question--especially tough ones like "What is your greatest weakness?" This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

As weird as it may feel to practice in the mirror or with a friend beforehand it will help you feel more confident and know your responses when asked a question--especially tough ones like "What is your greatest weakness?" This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions

This way your answer seems more fluid and prepared. Also have some questions prepared to ask the recruiter. You're interviewing not just for the position but you're interviewing the company. You want a position that suits both you and the company.

5. Time Commitment
The length of an interview can vary. It's probably a good idea to ask the recruiter beforehand how long you can expect to be there. Sometimes employers require you to fill out an application or questionnaire. Other times you'll be asked to take a skills test, personality test or some other type of testing. It's always good to plan ample amounts of time for an interview both before and afterwards so that you have time to follow up right away.


Any other recruiters or job seekers want to weigh in? What else do you need to do to prepare for an interview? What shouldn't you do during an interview?

Here's some tips for preparing yourself for that big interview coming up!

1. Cover All Your Bases
Be prepared in all respects. Dress for the interview, be on time or early, look focused and like you want the job. Go in feeling confident and that this job is right for you. Words aren't the only form of communication, body language, appearance, eye contact, listening and firm handshake are some non-verbal forms of communication that will help you cover all your bases.

2. Researching
Finding out all you can about the company will help you understand what you're getting into and help you form intelligent questions to ask. With the vast knowledge that can be found on the internet, use it! Find out who their competitors are and how this can relate to the position you are applying for. This information can be used to help you stand out. Know where you're going for the interview and how to get there.

3. What to Bring
Bring a copy or two of your resume. The recruiter will probably have a copy of your resume already but it wouldn't hurt to be prepared with one. You may also want to bring some extra paper to take notes during or about the interview. Do not bring your cell phone into the interview or at the very least turn it off or silent.

4. Questions, Questions
