“It’s been a week since my interview and I haven’t heard anything...” “I had a great informational interview but that was the last I heard...” “I had a phone conversation with a good contact in the company...” “I have almost 100 people I’ve networked with in my job search so far...” “I met someone, at (an event) that said they knew someone, but haven’t heard back...” “...should I follow up?” I teach an 8 week...
Take a Ride in the Elevator Before You Interview
by Barbara Safani - May, 2010
Everyone needs an elevator pitch which is a quick overview of who you are and the value you can bring to an organization.

Avoid These Reference Mistakes
by Dawn Bugni - May, 2010
I was having lunch with a friend a few years ago when a former coworker of hers entered the restaurant. It had been years since they worked together or even seen each other. They exchanged hugs and “how ya beens” quickly catching up on each other’s lives. The former coworker (we’ll call her Janet) shared that her family was moving to Raleigh in a few weeks and she would soon be looking for a new job in a new town. What she...

Interview Questions You Can Ask
by Ford R. Myers - May, 2010
The most important questions of your interviews might be the ones you ask. In the interview, don’t think you’re the only one who is “on the spot.” It is perfectly acceptable for you to ask questions of the interviewer and to take notes throughout the meeting (which will help you to formulate your questions). When an interviewer asks, “So, do you have any questions for me?” the worst thing you could possibly say is “Nope.” In s...

There is, in fact, a logical process to the interview. By knowing the particular the sequence of the interview, you will perform with greater confidence.
