3 Steps Every Job Candidate Must Take

February 6, 2018

Career Advice

Time for a new job? Time to get your head in the game! Ideally, before you even apply for a new job, you’ll have the three following steps completed–or at least begun. But it’s never too late to start stepping in the right direction during your job search. These three steps can help you take control of your destiny and give you confidence throughout the interview process.

  1. Clean up your online presence.
    Read our post on how to clean up your act online. It involves googling yourself, locking down your social profiles, and really putting yourself in a recruiter’s shoes. What does your online image portray about yourself? How can you make it even better? Don’t give anyone a reason not to hire you.
  2. Give your interview wardrobe a makeover.
    Well-fitting, polished, modern interview attire is an investment in your career. Don’t feel guilty buying a new outfit–and remember that includes shoes, a bag, and a haircut. You always want to present your best self in an interview. So treat yourself!
  3. Be a customer. 
    It’s one of our sure-fire ways to stand out in an interview. If you’re already a customer or user of the company you’re applying to, you’ll be a much better interview candidate. You’ll understand the brand, the customer, and the competition which gives more depth to your answers–and your questions.
