Job seekers should always tie their skills to the needs of a prospective employer, writes Ben Carpenter of CRT Capital Group. Candidates should focus on how their experience can help an employer, own their past mistakes and lead by example when they are on the job. "Be the first one in and the last to leave, ask questions, and be respectful of all your co-workers all the time. If you do this every day, I guarantee you will quickly be identified as a leader," Carpenter concludes.
