The Difference Between a Good and GREAT Job Interview


How many times have you walked out of a job interview thinking “That went well” versus “That went great!” Job interviews are tricky because even after we evaluate ourselves and the company we are pursuing, how do we know what is the best way to approach the interviewing process? Below are three tips that will benefit you in the long run when it comes to interviewing, as well as a video with tips to spare! 

Show Your Personality

Good: A good way to show your personality is to smile, express what a hard worker you are, and expand on your goals for working with the company.

Great: A GREAT way to show your personality is to make yourself unforgettable. When your interviewer asks how you are, say something that reflects your personal demeanor. “I’m great now the kids are back in school” is a more memorable than “I’m fine. Thanks. You?”. Use this tip to dive into your skills and ambitions as well. 

Know The Company

Good: You know how long the company has been standing for, you know the president, and you know the company’s mission.

Great: A GREAT way to stand out in an interview is knowing the company’s reputation. “Your company is well known for it's nationwide awards for customer service” sounds better than “Your company has an excellent reputation for the last 50 years”.

Ask Questions

Good: A good question is short, sweet, and simple to answer. It shows some interest in learning more about the position you are applying for.

Great: A GREAT question highlights your sincere interests and concerns. “What does a typical day look like for the position I’m applying for?” versus “What are some things I should know coming to work for your company?”

Overall, the goal of a job interview is to be hired. You want to walk away feeling like you’ve got the job. You also want to treat the interviewer and yourself with respect. Show who you really are; a professional and enjoyable person. Know the company's history in order to prove that you’ve done your research and that you have a genuine interest in the position you are applying for. Ask questions that help you explore the company. This way you can learn if this is a place you truly want to be.

Bring in Extra Money By Investing in Your Own Entrepreneurship



People find security and knowing that they can take care of themselves and the people they love. In order to do so, people sometimes get jobs that they might enjoy in order to bring home what their family needs.


That is why entrepreneurship is so wonderful! It serves as an opportunity to do what you love and get paid to do it. Now, the fear of becoming an entrepreneur is understandable. Where do you start? Where do you go once you start? What if it doesn’t work?

No one wants to make the jump into a dream unless they’re sure it can become a reality. It’s important to remember that everyone who is now big once started small. Apple and Amazon.com were started in garages. Quicken Loans was started with a few men and a couple of phone books. The magic in turning your passion into profit begins once you realize it’s a possibility.

Each of us has a passion. Each of us could use an extra couple of dollars in our pockets. The best thing you can do for yourself is study what you love, and find a way to profit from it. Do you enjoy cutting your own hair? Open up your Saturday mornings to cutting hair for a couple of hours. You will reach a state of nirvana doing what you love and having some extra cash to add to your monthly income.

That’s where entrepreneurship can begin. It’s the chance to discover what you love to do, and then find a way to profit from it. Once you begin getting paid for your hobby, just see where the road of happiness can take you. Build relationships as well as clientele. You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve once you have the need to make a difference in your life.
