    Get Pumped! The 5 Essential Tips for Getting Your Mindset Right for an Interview

    And it got me thinking: I’ve interviewed literally thousands of people over my long career. Most I forget over time. Some I forgot the next day.

    What was it about Bernadette that made her memorable?

    What makes ANY candidate memorable?

    I think it boils down to seven things. Keep them in mind the next time you interview.
