Top Desired Skills for Technology (IT) Jobs

Posted by Megan Jewell on Nov 14, 2019, 2:09:39 PM

A top question you should prepare to answer is, “why should we hire you?” This question is often seen as blunt or awkward to answer. This is most likely because our society has conditioned us to associate talking highly about ourselves with being arrogant and conceited. Although that might be true in some cases, it is definitely not the case in a job interview! You only have one chance to interview for a position, so make sure you let the hiring manager know that you are a great fit for this position.

Posted by Lexi Albrecht on Oct 17, 2019, 10:38:07 AM

As an employer, it is your job to attract candidates and also identify top talent among those applicants. When interviewing for your organization, it’s important you ask questions that not only reveal the type of employee they are (skills, experience, hard-worker, etc.), but also, to assess how they will fit in with the company culture, their conversation skills, and their ability to perform under pressure.
