America's got Talent- Do you?

I have recently started watching a new show on NBC, America’s Got Talent. My husband and I are not avid TV watchers, much less a diehard fan of any show, but for some reason AGT has slowly made its way into our lives every Monday evening.  One of things that we love about AGT is the uniqueness of each individual performing their art, talent, illusion or stunt.  There are people from all over the nation and even the world that compete for a chance to win a headline show in Las Vegas and a million dollars! Once they perform, the four judges then decide if the act stood out enough to make it through to the live show.

This got me thinking about all the growth MFRM Family of Brands is currently experiencing and the upcoming interviews, or “auditions”, our candidates will go through to find out if they have what it takes to join the MFRM family and the career they are seeking to land.

So, how can you make sure your “audition” stands out so you can make the cut? Check out this article from on “How to Answer the ‘Tell Me About Yourself’ interview question.” This article can help you answer this dreaded interview question but also help to ensure that you can speak about yourself and show that you have what it takes to stand apart from the rest, just like the artists on America’s Got Talent!

Dress for Success

All too often I hear of great candidates whose professional dress overshadowed their true potential. 

We communicate through many channels; verbal communication, body language, and appearance. Your interview attire says everything that you are not. Your appearance has the power to make or break your first impression. Attire makes a strong visual statement about how you see yourself. Think of the brand that you are projecting to your future employer. In this competitive job market, are you a brand employers want? Your individual successes and failures will contribute to that of the organization that you are applying for. 

When dressing for success think how your potential employer will receive and process your image. Is it an image that is synonymous with your career goals? When your appearance delivers what the employer is searching for, you've made a great first impression. You've just overcome the first obstacle and can move on to impress them with your experience and knowledge. When employers don't judge the cover, they appreciate the 3rd and 4th chapter of getting to know YOU!

Good luck and dress for success!

Book Lover's Day

Yesterday happened to mark one of my favorite days of the year, Book Lover's Day. I could bore you all with a list of my favorite books (Happy Potter 1-7) but thought it may be much more exciting to share Karrie Forbes' list. Karrie Forbes is MFRM's CBO and has been with MFRM Family of Brand since 1997. 

What are some of the books on your list? Share with me at
