Set yourself apart by sending an effective, value-add thank you message after each interview.
Q: I've been interviewing a lot but I'm not getting the position. Any suggestions? - Lana W. of Cincinnati, OH
A: I know it’s hard to stay positive, but the fact that you’re landing interviews is a good sign! This means your resume and online presence are sending the right signals to recruiters and hiring managers. Now all you need to do is brush up on those interviewing skills and your follow-up approach.
Preparation is key for a successful interview. Research the company’s business on their corporate website and through sites like Hoovers and Yahoo! Finance. Set up a Google News Alert in the days leading up to the interview to stay on top of relevant industry and company news. Additionally, learn as much as you can about the company culture by talking to contacts who’ve worked at the company and by going to sites like Glassdoor and Vault.
