Creating a FAB

Make a good impression at your interview by doing a little homework beforehand.

What is a FAB?

In presenting you to a prospective employer, it is our objective to have you stand out above the other candidates. One of the best ways that we have developed to do this is the Features/Accomplishments/Benefits presentation (or FAB for short). The FAB presentation helps us to present your background and experience in a format that helps the employer to see value. Unlike a resume, it does not contain any information that an employer frequently uses to disqualify a candidate from consideration for an opportunity. The FAB presentation is totally job related.

Just What Does A FAB Do?

  • A FAB tells what you can do for the employer. We want to show the employer just how you can impact their business and make their life easier. Remember, the employer wants to know what’s in it for them.
  • A FAB tells how you can benefit the potential employer.
  • A FAB helps to detail what you’ve accomplished in your past and present jobs.
  • A FAB helps to highlight your unique accomplishments and experiences.
