Watch: Inside the Mind of a Recruiter: Resumes, Interviews & Offers

Watch: Inside the Mind of a Recruiter: Resumes, Interviews & Offers

With conflicting opinions on how to find a job seemingly everywhere, it’s hard to figure out what recruiters are really looking for on resumes and in interviews, and even harder to know how to successfully negotiate offers.

During this webinar, I’m going to take you through 3 major parts of every interview process and the most frequently asked questions about each area: resumes, interviews, and offers.

  • Have you ever wondered what recruiters wish candidates had on their resumes (or wish candidates didn’t have on their resumes)?

  • How do you know what to say during an interview that will make you stand out in a crowd?

  • What do you need to do from the beginning of your interview process to get the offer you want in the end?
