    • Questions to Ask in a Final Round Interview

      You did it. You made it through the phone interview and several in-person interviews and now you’re here: the final interview. When the interviewer asks if you have any questions, it can be hard to think of something because you’ve already had so many other opportunities to ask questions. However, this is a great chance to show your interest in the job, and make sure the job is right for you. What do the first 30, 60, and 90 days of the job look like? This question shows two things. For your interviewer, it shows you have an interest in the day-to-day of the job and aren’t just looking for a paycheck.

    • Proving Your Soft Skills in an Interview

      When it comes to interviews, job applicants usually focus on hard skills, defined by Investopedia as “learned abilities acquired and enhanced through practice, repetition, and education.” Skills such as knowing how to use a certain program, experience working in a certain industry, or being familiar with a certain product or service.
