When you’re interviewing for IT jobs, it’s easy to think that your IT recruiters and IT staffing agencies will do most of the work for you. While your technical recruiters and IT staffing companies will in fact do a lot to advocate for you, it’s crucial to remember that you have an important role.
When you interview, you’ll do yourself a disservice if you don’t make it obvious for your interviewers (and the IT staffing agencies and IT recruiting firms that are representing you) that you’re a good fit for the job. While your experience and skills might seem like an obvious fit for a job (and your IT recruiting companies will definitely be making the case that you’re a good fit), nothing will speak as strongly for your candidacy as you will. So make sure to go into interviews and state it clearly: that you’d be able to succeed in the position (and don’t forget to bring some anecdotes of previous success and achievement to illustrate this!).
