After relocating back to the Savannah area, I was surprised to learn of …

She had a talking intro, then went straight into playing the piano and singing an Adele-style song (though not quite as dramatic). To be honest, at first it sounded as though she was over-compensating, and a bit immature, until I actually listened to the lyrics. This girl uses a song to explain her assets in detail, clearly communicate her strengths, and provide her objective. She’s …

Keys to a Successful Video Interview

Keys to a Successful Video Interview

Submitted by: Heather Sueirro, Recruiting Manager Advances in technology have made it easier for you to find and apply for your dream job, but fitting an interview into your already busy schedule can be difficult. One technology advancement that helps with this issue is the video interview platform. Major employers are using this in addition to, or as an alternative to, the traditional interview because it widens their candidate pool and helps to fill their positions faster. Because most potential employees complete video interviews outside of normal business hours, the convenience of interviewing virtually is unmatched and a time saver …
