Denise Rae, Senior Recruiter, AGCS

"Always be on time and remember that first impressions can make or break an interview.  Treat everyone you encounter, whether it is the parking attendant, the receptionist, or the hiring manager with courtesy and respect.  You never know who’s watching and evaluating.” 

 

Tarrah Schultz, Senior Recruiter, Allianz Life

“Be yourself - don’t try to be someone that you are not. Find ways to relate to the role and the company culture.  You will be surprised how much easier the interview is if you are familiar with the culture and can relate.”
