ICF Tip #7 – Understand What You’re Being Evaluated on


Understand What You’re Being Evaluated On

After a fair, some companies have their recruiters complete a simple evaluation sheet on the candidates they meet.  These sheets can include most of the following:

Personal Appearance: dress like you are a serious candidate and they’ll treat you like you are a serious candidate.

Professionalism:  come prepared, be able to communicate your skills clearly and concisely, and be knowledgeable about the employer and what they do.

Confidence:  we know you’re nervous. The trick is to appear like you are not.

Leadership: be ready to highlight your leadership experience whether in a job, club or volunteer setting.

Etiquette: be sure to use your best interpersonal skills.
