Strong By Design Podcast

Jan 19, 2022

When’s the last time you interviewed for a job? How did it go? This episode on Strong By Design discusses the mistakes many job candidates make on the day of their interview.

Remember, first impressions matter. When you’re attempting to gain employment with a small business or a large company, there are things to avoid and things you must get right. As they say, you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.


"Be on time, it's one of our values we don't deviate from... so being a minute late automatically eliminates people." -Mike Westerdal
