Congratulations on graduating! The most important thing to remember when starting your job search process is you can only control the way in which you present yourself from the application/resume throughout the interview process.. From this point forward you will probably be competing for jobs with individuals who may have more experience than you, however your job is to showcase for the interviewer the benefits of hiring YOU! The best way to make a great impression is to come prepared, be sure and do your research and the most critical thing is to bring your confidence. You can build your confidence in this situation by role playing the interview, get feedback and continue to work on your presentation skills, this will get you comfortable in the interview environment and you will become a star candidate. Employers are looking for the best employee, and if you can demonstrate through the interview that you have great learning agility and are eager to work for their company you stand a great chance of earning that position. Best of Luck!
