Interview Tips

AP Professionals notebook

For over twenty-five years, AP Professionals has been helping people prepare for interviews. We have compiled a list of resources to assist you in preparation. We find it’s helpful to review this before any interview, even if you have several years of experience interviewing in the past. It is always a good idea to refresh. A quick review can make you feel more prepared and confident.

Interview Questions

We have complied potential interview questions to help you get started whether you are facilitating the interview or going through the interview process.

Resume Writing

AP Professionals branded notepad
If your resume lacks distinction, take a few days to recall the achievements in your career (almost a report card on yourself). You’ll find things about yourself that you might not have included in your most current resume. Be patient in this process, it’s your career you’re thinking about. Remember, it’s not what you’re responsible for that gets you a job (your peers have the identical responsibilities), it’s what you do well within your responsibilities that separates the winners from the losers. We have also come up with some additional do’s and don’ts to help you.
