The 3 Basic Tenets of Interview Prep
From Recruiter - October 21, 2016

Even though it may notseem like it at times, getting your resume seen and receiving a call from a recruiter is the easy part of job searching. The challenge really begins when it comes time to interview.

Because ResumeSpice was built by recruiters,we know how to ace the interviewand we want you to know, too. Here are the three basic tenets of interview prep:

1. Know the Job Description

The great thing about a job description is that it leaves very little guesswork about what the employer wants and expects. You can use this to your advantage during an interview. For example, if a job description for a recruiting position states that agency experience is desirable but not required, you know its a good idea to talk up your experience with agencies during the interview.

Consider printing the job description and making notes on it to bring to the interview. Setcues for yourself around how you want to talk about your experience as it pertains to certain requirements of the job.

2. Do Your Research

That means if you go into the interview with a vague sense of what the company offers, you might not receive a call back.
