What do you look for in a job?• Your resume suggests that you may be over-qualified or too experienced for this position. Whats your opinion?• In your current (last) position, what features do (did) you like the most? What features do (did) you like the least?• What are your long-term career objectives?• What is your ideal working environment like?• Why should we hire you?
Writing a Cover Letter:• Cover letters are always written specifically for each position and typically accompany a resume.• The cover letter should support the resume, not simply repeat the same information that has already been mentioned.• Take your time!
