Here are some helpful tips for landing the job from everyone’s favorite manager, Michael Scott:

      1. Before the Interview, Research the Company. Find EVERYTHING You can about it- the Culture, Customer Ratings, Financial Statements – Until You can Explain them to Everyone

      2. Prepare Some Questions (at least 3) Before You Go into the Interview

        …Maybe not that one, but you get the idea.

         

      3. Brush Up on Your Resume and think of Different ways to Sell Yourself! You Should be able to Explain Everything on it, so you don’t have to Worry about this Scenario…
