Getting ready to interview? Well jump on the Net and start doing your searching...

First and foremost do the research on the company that you are interviewing with, if asked in an interview "What do you know about us and why do you want to work for our company?" You can give them factual info on there company! Makes a great impression, Tell them that they are a company you've targeted as wanting to work for...Wow sounds like you know what you want!

Doing a Competency Interview? Google Competency Interviews
Doing an interview for a Executive Chef position? Google how to interview for an Executive Chef
Google, questions to ask in an interview!, or final interview or what ever you are interviewing for.

Role play as if you were the person who was interviewing for this position. You'll start to improve how you present your skills and feel more comfortable when you are being interviewed.

When asked what your salary is, tell them what you are making break it down Base and Bonus, don't role it all into one lump. You don't want to state a figure way to high, compare Apples to Apples!
When asked what your looking for, respond, "I know you will make a fair offer based on this position" Don't state a figure as you may come in lower then what they anticipated or higher and your ruled out!

It's a fact that if you spend the time to prepare for your interviews, you will do much better!

Here are a few videos to watch that may help you!

Not getting a lot of response to positions you have posted/applied for? Look at your resume, could you need to fine tune it? You'll know when the phone starts to ring...

Good Luck!
