It’s a new season of American Idol which means another batch of entertaining, yet all-too-often painful first-round tryouts in front of the judges panel. While some people get up there and blow the judges away by simply showcasing their skill and talents, others are memorable for all the wrong reasons.
Watching the tryouts is actually good for anyone who is going through the job search process. You can learn a lot about what to do — and what not to do – in an interview just by watching those American Idol hopefuls because just like job seekers, they will often try anything to impress an employer.
From certain skill sets to that cultural fit, it’s no wonder job seekers are confused about what employers are really looking for in their next hire. If you are wondering that same thing hoping to make some headway in your job search, watch our latest video from CareerBuilder TV about the things that can sway employers.
