In the process of preparing and submitting resumes, practicing interview questions, and thinking about what to wear to an interview it is very easy to lose sight of the fact that you have power in the process.
Remember that you are selling quality products (your skills, experience, and abilities) and can determine how you want to be treated during the interview and hiring process. Employers are looking for fit and working to identify red flags and inconsistencies in your stories. Make sure you are doing your due diligence as well.
Processes that are unorganized and at times disrespectful tell you something about the organization or at least the person you are interviewing with. Know when it is time to walk away and put your energy elsewhere.
