Want to Get a Meeting to Discuss an Entry Level Job Opportunity? Tips to Help You Prepare

Lots of resume guides advise listing your work experience in reverse chronological order, with your most recent job first (it’s like the movie Memento! … Except not). Though your resume may not be a masterpiece memoir, it also doesn’t have to adhere to a strict chronology, especially if you’ve held a random smattering of jobs that aren’t relevant to what you’re hoping to land now. Look at standard resumes for how to make your story pleasing to the eye, rather than how to tell the story itself.

Well, rest assured it does mean something; and your answers can reveal a lot about you.

What an employer wants to know varies from question to question, but the goal is always the same: they want you to drop little hints about your personality or past that might otherwise be hidden. Little hints that will allow them to build a picture of you as a worker and person, beyond what you might be willing to tell them. Here’s how: (more…)

So you’re few months away from graduation and you’re still deciding on what you actually want to do. With thousands of options and expectations laid in front of you, it’s likely that you might take the wrong decision(s) while choosing the right career path. It could be out of pressure, anxiety or even indecisive trait.
