JOB SEEKER TIPS

Interviewing:

**Remember…If you got the interview then you probably qualify for the position. Now you just have to sell yourself. Employers normally know within five minutes if they want to hire you or not.**

**Even though Facebook can be a great tool it can cause more harm than good. Before your interview more employers are reviewing Facebook pages to learn about your character and behavior. Please use extreme caution with your language, photos, politics and religious beliefs.**
