Helping hand need not be a secret

Thu, Mar 26, 2015

Q. One from left of field. I recently went to a career training company (not you, sorry!) and they did an excellent job at getting me ready for interview. The interview is on next week. I am thinking about making it clear to the interview panel that I had received professional training and support in preparation for the interview.

A. Funny you should bring this point up now DR because I have had two recent experiences with clients who did the very thing that you have mentioned. One let it be known at an interview that the brochure he had produced to promote his own candidature (he’s a salesman) was not all his own work but that he had received assistance from a copywriter and designer to make it happen.
