Rusty Interview Help
by Judi Perkins - Apr, 2010
If you haven’t looked for a job in a while, skydiving might be preferable to interviewing. But there are a few simple steps that will remove the fear and give you the confidence you’d otherwise wish you had. Common sense says you need to research the company via their website, brochures or the library, although you’d be surprised at how many skip the obvious. Basics also include bringing a few extra copies of your resume ...
Getting In The Door: Networking with Informational Interviewing
by Julie Walraven - Apr, 2010
In the career and resume industry, career professionals have for years encouraged their clients to go for informational interviews. I have done my share of demonstrating to clients that they have a network, how to use it to find jobs and how to take the first step. I also do my own informational interviewing with both colleagues and clients. For the past few years, with clients, I periodically pick one to have lunch with an...
Action Plan - an Interview Necessity or a Threat To Your Future?
by Amanda Guralski - Apr, 2010
Ready. Set. Action plan. More and more, businesses are discovering that employee action plans are an efficient, uniform way to keep employee and potential employee ducks in a row. It makes sense. Before a business becomes a business it is typically birthed through the breeding grounds of a business plan. To transfer that organizational philosophy to the individuals who comprise the business, expecting that they create their ow...
How To Manage A Job Interview For Maximum Impact
by Ramon Greenwood - Mar, 2010
It's a cardinal sin to go into a job interview without planning and preparing to manage the opportunity for maximum impact. First of all, be aware of the six criteria by which most interviewers will rate your interview skills and qualifications for the job. 1. Personal impression you make: neatness in dress and manner; self-confidence; and maturity. 2. Preparation for the interview: knowledge about the business of the...
Handling Discriminatory Questions in an Interview
by Bettina Seidman - Mar, 2010
An applicant involved in an employment interview is anxious to please, to impress, and to persuade. And that is as it should be. However, from time to time inappropriate personal questions are asked, which may make an applicant uncomfortable. As a Career Management Coach, I suggest that often these personal questions are more frequently asked of women than of men. Applicants are protected from answering a variety of i...
Should You Work With a Recruiter?
by Laura Smith-Proulx - Mar, 2010
Considering contacting a recruiter for your job search? You’ll need to first understand how this relationship works, then locate and nurture the best sources of recruiters for your field. First of all, your best option is to contact more than one recruiter during a job search. For jobseekers who don’t grasp the overall strategy of recruiting, this may seem confusing. Can’t the recruiter you called just find you a job? We...
From Twitter, LinkedIn & Facebook to Face-To-Face
by Harry Urschel - Mar, 2010
Not long ago, I received an email from someone asking: “I am in the midst of a horrible job hunt and have been for a while. Do you know of any online groups or support forums that can help me keep a schedule or talk about issues? I live in a small town and the local groups are more geared towards factory workers rather than professionals.” Good question! Most larger metropolitan areas have a number of networking groups, ...
Want an Edge for Your Job Interview? Do the Work
by Dawn Lennon - Mar, 2010
The art of interviewing well—it’s a thing of beauty! The candidate walks out the door and the interviewer basks in the after-glow. Unfortunately, these moments are few and far between. Why is that? Because interviewing well isn’t easy. It’s a skill that needs to be perfected so that you make it look easy, the way golf and tennis pros make their sports look easy. Your “sport” is the interview. Have you worked hard to beco...
Are You Ready for the Upcoming Hiring Tsunami?
by Lou Adler - Mar, 2010
Over the past few weeks I’ve met with 50 or so recruiting leaders from major corporations around the country. Interestingly, nobody is doing nothing. A third are increasing their hiring forecasts, a third are hiring more recruiters, and a third are getting ready for a sign that hiring will increase. It appears that the stars are finally in alignment. So get ready to rumble. We’re in for a triple witching hour hiring tsuna...

Impressions are made, and solidified very quickly. And in today’s Job Market where companies meet many candidates during an interview process for a position, you can be forgotten quickly too. Use your Thank You notes to reinforce your excitement for the role, the company and your ‘brand’. As each moment passes after our interview, memories can begin to fade.
