Show Them, You Are Worth It – Job Hunting

Every job interview is different and should be approached with the attitude of I am going to show them I am worth it. In essence, we have to become salesmen and women, showing the prospective employer how good we are and what we can do for them.

By doing this you can decide which to send out for different position.

Do not be afraid to pat yourself on the back. Your prospective employer has never met you and knows nothing about you, other than what is on a piece of paper in front of them. Let them know what you are good at and compliments or awards you have received for your work. Being confident is different than being arrogant, so be careful not to over do it.

During an interview you will have the ability to further explain you qualities that would be a great asset for this company. Keep in mind; you do not need to tell them everything you have done that, in your mind, is great. You do not want to come across as arrogant. Before the interview, pick out a few different things that you are good at and highlight those as key factors. Be professional without sounding too uptight. If this does not come naturally, practice it.

When preparing for an interview, it never hurts to have examples of your work handy. You may not need them, but take them, just in case the interviewer asks to see some examples of your work.

One aspect in a person every employer looks for is a good work ethic. Be prepared to look them in the eye and tell them about yours. This shows the employer that you are confident in your work, mean what you say and that you are worth it!
