Kelly's Resume/Career Quick Tip of the Week
I & WE, THE LITTLE THINGS THAT CAN SINK YOU:  I wish I could say American businesses really have interviewing down. The truth is, frequently it’s more about how someone perceives you and nothing to with a consistent process or steeped in facts and science. This is especially true at small to medium companies or when you are talking to ownership during the interview.  The more you say and offer long dialog, the more that can lead to the talking your way out of a job or shooting yourself in the foot.  I have seen candidates get passed on because they used I or we too much. If you say WE too much, you may be perceived as not able to work alone, take charge and make something happen. If you say I too much, you don’t sound like a team player. I have seen candidates get kicked for both usages. So, with those two words be aware and try to show both sides. In general, you can’t prep for these kinds of biases and quickly formed impressions. Having well-rehearsed talking points can help some, just be aware that the littlest of things can trip you up. Make sure you are clear, short and concise with answers when possible.   CHECK OUT THE FIRST POST FOR SOME REMOTE WORKING HUMOR, WE ALL NEED IT!
