Good morning. It’s Wednesday December 13, 2017 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!

Cyn 3 is brought to you this week from

Mary Pinto Meyer, Regional HR Director at Access Intelligence.

What are the top three things you look for in a qualified candidate during an interview? 
  1. Presentation and professionalism
  2. Adaptability
  3. Ambition 
You can get a general feel by phone, but you can see so much more in person. You can tell pretty early on in the interview if the candidate will be a fit to the team. Skills are important, but a fit with the overall culture and vision of the organization is also of huge importance. Stay tuned to hear what Mary has to share about what 3 things she feels might cost a candidate the job during an interview…..
