Why preparation is essential in the interview phase of job hunting. -part 3 of 3- Plus, updates on Singapore jobs.

If you pay attention to our blog or read it once in a while, you may know why we're strong advocates of preparation. Being specific is the safest strategy to embrace. Many tips are available on excelling job interviews as much as the other topic, but only a few can prove to be good to your pursuit. Ignore the rest of the others or you'll blow up your chance of getting the job altogether. We're not saying don't read and follow tips, but use only the ones you think go along well with the preferences of the company that has invited you and of course, yours.

Research about the company so that you'll know how you can incorporate your goals with theirs. To accomplish this, there’s the need for you to study your resume carefully as well. We also want you to take the time to know about the most common job interview questions. You never know -- recruiters like using these questions because they make everything faster.


Because we can't let the week pass without giving you updates.... That's public service at its finest.
