Author and human resource CEO Patricia D. Sadar offers recent college grads a refresher course in the art of interviewing.
In her latest book, "Congratulations ... You Aced the Interview," the CEO of People2Strategy suggests that recent graduates freshen up their skills as if prepping for a quiz. That's especially important as their job hunt morphs from the heady days of summer into the chilly fall. Her tips aren't likely to razzle dazzle your intellect, but will have you nodding, 'Of course." Reminders never hurt.
That's especially true considering that 14 million Americans (including 200,000 Minnesotans) are all scrambling to find a job, any job. Another 9 million Americans are working part-time jobs despite wanting full-time gigs. There's lots of competition out there, so do the best you can. As you'll see, it's not hard.
Among the goodies on Sadar's checklist:
