Job seeking can be a long and cruel journey. If you’ve been job searching for a long time, it can be easy to take rejections personally. If you’re wondering why you haven’t gotten a job yet, it can be hard to say. Many times, it has more to do with the position or the company than it does for you, as the applicant. Maybe that position is more subtly complicated, or that company requires a different sort of personality for their cultural fit. Office politics can sometimes play a role in the hiring process, but at Toledo Molding & Die, every individual is valued, regardless of their position. In fact, many of Toledo Molding & Die’s current supervisors started out in entry-level positions and worked their way within the ranks. Whether a person is a materials handler or a supervisor, their job at Toledo Molding & Die is essential to ensure ultimate customer satisfaction, which is what TMD is all about. If you’re still looking for a job and think you might find one at Toledo Molding & Die, here are some tips to help you prepare for your interview.
- ResearchThe best way to prepare for a job interview is to research the position and company. Know what you’re talking about and how to talk about it. Use all of the resources available to you to discover as much as you possibly can about the position and company. A recruiting website, such as http://jobs.tmdinc.com/ is a great place to start, but don’t forget to check out https://www.tmdinc.com/ as well.

- Practice Your Talking PointsMake sure you are familiar with your own resume before beginning the interview. There’s nothing more awkward than an interviewer asking a candidate for clarification about something on their resume, and they can’t answer, because they don’t remember what was on their resume. Pick a few of your best achievements and practice talking about them. This doesn’t have to be a solo endeavor in the mirror–try enlisting a best friend, or finding someone in your field via LinkedIn or another networking tool to share your accomplishments
- Prepare Questions Ahead of TimeIt’s important to ask your interviewer questions at the end of an interview. This shows that you were listening and paying attention, so you know what has already been said. Not to mention, a job-seeking process is ultimately about you, too. This is going to be your everyday-in-and-outs for the foreseeable future, so it’s important that you feel comfortable understanding its responsibilities. It’s much easier to think of potential questions ahead of time than it is to create them while the interviewer is staring at you at the end. If you prepare questions ahead of time, your interviewer will know that you were thinking ahead.
