Job interviews are critical to snaring that coveted job. But you won't have much time to make that winning first impression, career experts say.
That's because companies know within a few minutes of an interview if the job candidate will fit into the company's culture, says Jessica Pierce, founding partner and executive director of Career Connectors in Gilbert. Those looking to stand out during the interview process should really know what they will bring to the company before being interviewed, she says.
"The interview is almost a dress rehearsal. (What) interviewers look for is somebody that will make an immediate impact for them and will make a difference for them," Pierce says.
