Obtaining that dream job

As an applicate in today’s job market, you need to be prepared to answer two questions according to your situation.
1. Does your education qualify you for the position?
2. Do you have the technical skills to perform the duties that your LCA approved job title and classification require?
In today’s competitive marketplace a simple yes is not a sufficient answer. When the interviewer inquires why you believe you qualify, they want you to explain precisely how your skills and experience match the job description specifications. This is not a time to be vague and unprepared; you’re answer should be well thought out, specific and concise.
Your answer will accomplish two things for the interviewer:
1. Allow the interviewer to gauge how well your skills and experience match the needs of the position.
2. Give a clear picture of how you perceive the available position.
There are a few rules to remember when answering the question, “What makes you the best candidate for the position?”:
1. Be concise, give a lot of information clearly in a few words.
2. Be specific, give clear definitions.
3. Show the correlation between your skills, experience, and education and the specific needs of the prospective employer.
4. Know your prospective employer and the detailed specifications of the position. Do your homework.
5. Be confident, not over-confident.

Quality Information Systems (web or software applications) are the backbone of most business operations today (whether client-facing or internal), yet, according to Research studies “one-third of business stakeholders are dissatisfied with the quality of their current information systems.”

A poorly integrated and tested information system severely effects on an organization’s clients, sales, partnerships, employees and financial bottom line.

Security, cloud computing, virtualization, service-oriented architectures, mobile deployments, and ever-changing compliance requirements all strain the performance of information systems and the abilities of IT department or team.
