A mock interview is the best way to prepare to speak with a potential employer. You will have the opportunity to practice answering difficult questions as well as receive feedback on how you present in interviews. You will also be able to ask your consultant about their background, and how he or she obtained their job.
Your résumé is a summary of your experience, knowledge and skills. It should show an employer what you’ve done, not just what you are capable of. Because your résumé should cater to the position you are seeking, you may need several versions that are specific to the jobs you are applying to.
