Not too long after I started my career, in the 1990s, I found myself on the other side of the interview table. Part of my responsibilities were to evaluate and interview candidates for the summer internships. This was quite an interesting challenge for me, since I was sitting on the other side of the interview table just months before I was given the task.
Over the last twenty-seven years, I have been involved with the new hire process — scanning through piles of resumes, interviewing candidates and even making the decision on who to hire and to not hire for a given position. During this time, I have built my own top-ten list of things to keep in mind when submitting your credentials for an open opportunity.
