calendar for the next â€œRÃ©sumÃ©s and Applicationsâ€ seminar. Once youâ€™ve completed that, you can have your rÃ©sumÃ© critiqued by a Certified Professional RÃ©sumÃ© Writer at our RÃ©sumÃ© Clinic. If the rÃ©sumÃ© is in order and employers are calling you, the next trouble spot is the interview. Are you prepared? Do you know something about the company? Are you able to anticipate the questions the interviewer asks? Are you talking enough, or perhaps too much? Do you dress for the job you want? Is your outfit clean, pressed, appropriate? Do you arrive on time? Do you have questions to ask the interviewer? You can gain more information on how to handle job interviews in our â€œInterview Successâ€ seminar; click on the link for Upcoming Events to find out when the next class is. One last question for you: did you send a thank-you note after the interview? Yes, itâ€™s a lot of work, but itâ€™s still a good idea. (Trying to save work in the job hunt is false economy, like staying up all night studying for an exam. If you sleep through the test, you lose all your points.) Many employers expect a thank-you note. In case you forgot to tell them something important, this is your opportunity. Besides, itâ€™s courteous; and in some companies, the lack of a thank- you note is a deal breaker. If you donâ€™t get the job, you might call the interviewer and ask for free advice. Assume they made a good choice; you just want to know if thereâ€™s something you could have done better. That said, a month is not a long time to look for the right job, though it certainly feels like half of forever. Keep at it. Donâ€™t give up.
