Sandy Swadish from GreatStaff Solutions in Wixom shares some interviewing tips about what hiring managers like to see more from candidates.

She recommends always being:

  • On time
  • Dressed appropriately
  • Prepared (know about the company, the position and what you are interviewing for)
  • Available and ready to start work right away

She also always recommends bring your resume along, even if they have a copy.

Be able to talk about your strengths, but don't oversell your experience or capabilities. And never give negative comments about past employers.
