Getting your resume to stand out is half the battle. But if you’re selected to interview for the position, you want to focus on making a memorable and good impression, and the kind that sets you apart from the other applicants. If you’re getting ready for an upcoming job interview, the following tips can help:
Be completely honest
If you lack a specific ability, education level, or certain amount of experience—be upfront about it. Some of these things might not even be an issue, but if they are, it’s best that you’re honest about everything from the beginning. Even bending the truth just a little bit can backfire if you do get hired, so it’s best to just tell the complete truth during your interview.
The end of any interview will almost always conclude the same way: you’ll be asked if you have any questions. Even if your interviewer was very thorough, you don’t want to say no. Always have at least a few questions you can ask—especially ones that show you researched the position and/or company beforehand and took the time to learn more about what you’d be doing and who you’d be working for.
After the interview
Once the interview comes to an end, be sure to once again express your interest in the job and the company, and remember to thank the interviewer for their time. And unless it was already discussed during the interview, you could always ask about when you might expect to hear something, and by what date they’re hoping to hire someone.
Within 24 hours, be sure to send a follow-up thank you note; if several people interviewed you, send an individual thank you note for each person. You can do this through email or postal mail, but sending a handwritten letter by mail has a nice touch and can help you stand out more from the other applicants.
Do you need extra cash to take care of bills and expenses, or to make a large purchase? Whether you want to pay down debt, buy a car, put a down payment on a home, or pay for college, Peachtree Financial Solutions may be able to help. If you’re receiving long-term payments from a payment stream, such as an annuity or structured settlement, you may already have the money you need. However, the periodic payment schedule may be inconvenient or frustrating, and receiving that money in smaller installments may no longer meet your current needs. But there is a way you can receive your money sooner.
By selling some or all of your future payments to Peachtree Financial Solutions, you can receive your cash in a lump sum payment. Receiving your cash in one lump sum means no more waiting for the smaller payments to arrive, which can make it possible to take care of certain things without waiting to save up. And when you work with Peachtree Financial Solutions, you’re in control of just how many payments you sell. You can choose to sell them all, or you can sell just a portion of them and keep the remainder of your long-term payment stream intact. If you ever decide later on that you want to sell more of your payments, you’ll always have that option.
