Discussion 37-Alamo: Consider This.

Job Club Alamo Area | 4 comments

After carefully reading the responses to last week’s discussion “Tell Me About Yourself,” it is apparent that many of us are still making the common mistake of providing answers with regard to our personal lives and interests. Consider this, an employer hires you for two reasons and two reasons only. One is to solve a problem and the other is to make money? So our answers should always be able to address these two reasons.
