  You don't get a second chance to make a good first impression

Many people forget about the interview.  They prepare a resume and cover letter and then sit back to wait, instead of being proactive by preparing and practicing for the interview. The interview is your first chance to make a positive impression.  It requires a great deal of advance preparation and practice in order to do it well.  You need to know yourself well enough to convince an employer to give you a chance.   Land that job!  Drop in to Employment Networks or call 613-432-3424 to register for our free Ace the Interview info session on June 1, 9.30-11.30am.
