Spin Yourself at Interviews

Brought to you by ResumeEdge — the premier resume writing and editing service on the Web.ResumeEdge Professional Resume Writing

Create your basic message for interviews.

Using the skills profile you created and your knowledge of the employer and job (study the job description advertised), develop an overall interview message. An example for a consultant job follows.

"I will bring to this consultancy position a combination of skills and qualities that I am confident would make me a valuable contributor to the company."

"In my previous position as a Project Manager, I spearheaded the development of multi-media projects that exceeded the expectations of our clients."

"Although my teams and I faced multiple obstacles, I used my problem-solving skills and judgment to overcome barriers in a way that satisfied the interests of our clients, my company, and my teams."

"I was able to gain the trust and confidence of the team members. My communication and negotiation skills enabled me to lead frazzled and sometimes antagonistic teams of people to work together in a focused and productive way."

"Ever since this pressure-cooker experience, I have gained licensure as a court mediator, and I have a master's degree in conflict resolution."

"In addition to my ability to mobilize teams by overcoming conflict and confusion, my company made use of my organizational skills and my self-initiative. I was able to work with a minimum of supervision, but consulted the company directors when I needed their input, guidance, or support."

"Since I was responsible for creating the concepts and content of the projects that I managed, my self-direction enabled me to balance multiple responsibilities, while still carving out time to generate winning ideas and write content."

Identify your bottom line for interviews.

Using your basic message, now simplify and clarify the core of what you have to offer. For example,

"I offer your company and this position effective negotiation and communication abilities, creative problem solving and project management skills, inner drive and initiative, and strong writing skills. My colleagues here would find me dependable and flexible."
