“Never go back.” What does that mean? From observations of successful people, clinical psychologist and author of Never Go Back: 10 Things You’ll Never Do Again (Howard Books, June 2014), Dr. Henry Cloud has discovered certain “awakenings” that people have—in life and in business—that once they have them, they never go back to the old way of doing things. And when that happens, they are never the same. In short, they got it.

Yes, you DO have a “Google Resume,” whether you know it or not. And whether or not you are paying attention.
I’m not talking about your Google Plus profile or a resume you submit to Google for a job there. Your Google resume is what recruiters, and others, find when they search Google for your name.
Famous author Richard N. Bolles, who writes the classic best seller “What Color Is Your Parachute?” stated in 2009 —
“Google is the new resume.”

Getting an interview is really exciting! We all know that most people apply for many more jobs than they are invited to interview for, so getting that call can really help with building confidence in your job search. The issue is however that many people do not prepare enough for the interview.
Preparation is really important and here are 5 things that you must do in preparation for that interview:
1) Know the content of your resume
As you would have tailored your resume to address the needs of this role, knowing what you told them in the resume is really important. The interview questions will most likely be staged around this content, so having confidence in building on what you told them in your resume is really important.
2) Research the role
You know how the role was advertised, but through a little bit of research you can get a greater understanding about the position responsibilities, reporting lines and expectations. Understanding as much as you can help with preparing your examples and responses.
3) Research the interviewer
You may not have the information about the company if you are working through a recruiter, but finding out professional information on the interviewer can help you feel at ease when you first meet them. Use tools such as LinkedIn to understand a little more about their background and specialist areas.
4) Plan your trip
Knowing how to get to the interview and how long the trip will take can minimise any last minute stresses. Plan your trip and allow extra time. Accidents and delays happen and although it is a legitimate reason for being delayed; it still isn’t a great way to start an interview.
5) Practice your interview
Working through examples of your achievements and responses and practicing your interview can help eliminate nerves. Use a friend or work with an interview coach to focus on how you communicate your answers, how you can demonstrate your employability and more of all be able to sell yourself in to the role.
