Description

Over the last 12 years, Jennifer Armitstead has placed over 1000 people in various positions as an independent recruiter. In this interview http://www.mycollegesandcareers.com/video/career-tips-an-interview-with-jennifer-armitstead, she shares insightful tips on how to work with recruiters to advance your career, how education will give you an edge over the competition, and how to prepare for an important interview. Jennifer describes how college students can begin the job hunt far before they graduate by building critical relationships with professors, classmates, and recruiters. Education plays a critical role in getting a job. When it comes down to comparing two candidates, side by side, the one with a degree or certification will win out nearly every single time. Employers want to see that their employees are willing to commit and finish things. While students are at school, it's a great time to start thinking about what they want to be known for -- their personal brand. This is a big reason that people go back to school for further education is to set them apart. Once students know what they want to be known for, it's important to communicate that to the recruiters who come on campus looking to hire. Before going into a job interview, it's important to be prepared. Dressing professionally will help job applicants set them apart from everyone else. Also, take time to do a mock interview with a recruiter to be prepared to answer questions that will be posed in the interview. It can make a big difference!
