This is Jeff Albin, the big game hunter. And I want to tell you the biggest mistake Job Hunters make. You actually believe that the job description you've been reading, or the job edge is saw is accurate. Every HR person I know laughs when I talk about that, but the fact is, maybe there 80% accurate. Maybe they're 80% accurate. Start off your interview by saying, hey, thanks so much for making time to meet with me. I really appreciate it. You know, I remember the job description or I remember what so and so told me about the position, but I want to get your take on the role. Could you tell me about the job as you see it and what I can do to help the difference between that and what you normally do is now you know the target, and your goal is to talk about what you've done that matters to them and not just talk about what you've done. No one cares about the things that don't relate to what they're looking for. Follow me on Tick tock, be great.
