An impressive resume and stellar cover letter can be tossed in minutes if a candidate shows poor body language during an interview.
Job candidates come in all ages but with an increasing amount of individuals searching the job market, it can be tough to stand out from the crowd.
A first impression is so important, especially when trying to land a job but there are plenty of things job seekers do that can really grind the gears of HR managers.
Not only is it important to stay up-to-date on skills required for your career but employers are now weighing more on candidates with hybrid skills. These cross functional job skills used to be specific to one department but now with the range of job seekers in the job market, employers are looking for candidates that have more to offer.
There are so many little tips and tricks to being a better job seeker — clean up your social media profiles, refresh your resume, network,— the list goes on, but the first interaction with a company is usually when the application is sent. Something that’s usually not considered when sending emails is the email signature, but that’s one extra area to include the important information employers need.

While it can be a nerve wracking experience, there are many benefits for both you and the potential employer. Here are some things you need to consider when preparing for a video interview.
