Interview Communication: Self-Evaluation

EVALUATING HOW YOU DID AND WHERE YOU NEED WORK

After the interview ask yourself, “Did I identify three or four of the organization’s most critical needs, and convince the interviewer that I have the energy, motivation and drive, love the work, and sell my skills and abilities to perform successfully?”  Then evaluate yourself on each point from 1 (low) to 5 (high).  How did you do?
