Authenticity Has To Be Real In A Job Search

job search tips and adviceBe yourself… “fake it ‘til you make it” simply doesn’t fly in today’s economy. Employers are getting more sophisticated and
able to sniff out smoke screens from lesser qualified applicants trying to puff themselves up to something that they aren’t.
Focus on being the best you that you can be in the interview, but don’t be a chameleon and change your stripes so much that
you can’t recognize yourself from one job interview to the next.

By being true to your authentic self, you’ll connect better with those who are interviewing you, and you won’t have to worry
about covering your tracks later in case you answered something differently that doesn’t really jive with your true core.
