Employment consultant Joe Arrigo supports job seekers through coaching and resume consultation. As the proprietor of Advisr Enterprises and a resource development manager for Modis recruiting, Joe Arrigo guides his clients through every step of the job cycle, including interview preparation.
Job descriptions can serve as helpful guidelines for interview preparation by providing a preview of the type of questions a candidate may need to field during an interview. Applicants can demonstrate their suitability for a position by referring to their expertise in the skills mentioned in the job description. They can practice talking about their past experiences handling similar tasks or projects.
Further, many job descriptions categorize skills or competencies as either required or supplementary. If the candidate does not possess some of the nonessential skills, they should be prepared to discuss how they plan to improve their proficiency in this area. After researching the company and the role, applicants can use information missing from the job description to brainstorm thoughtful questions to ask in the interview.
Talent acquisition specialist Joe Arrigo finds exceptional candidates for IT and engineering firms in and around Sacramento, California. Joe Arrigo also manages his own company, Advisr Enterprises, which offers support in interview preparation, resume writing, and career counseling based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).
The MBTI categorizes people into 16 main personality types, based on a combination of four dichotomies: introversion/extroversion, intuitive/sensing, feeling/thinking, and judging/perceiving. Each type has strengths and weaknesses that impact how the type performs in leadership roles.
Personalities with an extroverted sensing element, which means they draw their energy from interacting with others, and they gather information through things they directly observe, have been found to be best suited for leadership positions. However, this does not mean other types cannot lead effectively.
For example, people with Intuitive thinking preferences are indispensable for developing strategies or innovative problem-solving. Intuitive feeling types are beneficial for leadership roles that require consensus or help team members with personal development.
Outside of his varied professional pursuits, Joe Arrigo enjoys reading and weightlifting, working out four times per week. He also reads upward of 50 books per year and enjoys ping pong, darts, and partaking in political discussion.
