Think Like the Employer. Get the Interview!
In today’s competitive job market, it is imperative to research prospective companies or organizations in order to understand what their needs are so that you may set yourself apart from the many other qualified applicants.
To do this, reverse roles. Become the employer. Think like the employer. Then, as you conduct your research, you will be able to pinpoint exactly how your years of experience, pertinent skill and character traits or works style meet their specific needs.
