what your strengths are. You must know your
industry. You must be prepared to work
smarter, not harder.

Are you ready to present yourself to potential
employers? Do you know how to present and
captivate your perspective employer during a
job interview? Can you answer tough questions
under scrutiny? Do you look the part? What does
your handshake say about you? Do you know
what it means to "walk the talk
?"
