Daily Interview Tip

The job market is getting more competitive by the day. Pre-recession organisations had larger budgets and less lean organisational processes. Thus they were more flexible in their hiring. In the past, if a candidate matched 90% of their criteria they would consider that a good fit. Now, with stricter requirements, companies cannot afford to hire you unless you are a 100% match. When asked to describe a previous conflict, never say you had none. It can send out a signal that the you are inexperienced or that you lack the tough skin or skills to deal with confrontation. Come to a job interview with examples and situations that demonstrate your abilities or strengths (for example, a time you demonstrated good judgment, initiative, responsibility, or communication skills).
