Last week I had the best interview of my life. After the interview was over they brought me in to HR for an orientation packet, they photo copied my id and I was asked where I was salary wise. Before I finished the packet, the HR person had to go and said to bring it home with me. The person I interviewed with, said everything would be alright and to give her a call on Wednesday. Again, the HR person said don't worry nothing is wrong, I am... see more

Sometimes an interviewer will make an off-color comment or joke that really tips us off about what they think about us. When Shelly was interviewing for a Lab Technician position, her interviewer dropped a comment on her that set her alarm bells ringing! Shelly says:

She kept telling me that their is a lot of walking with the job. I said Okay. As I was walking back to the trailer with her she made a comment You know as you age your body slows... see more

I would completely ignore the comment and re-direct the conversation, by saying something like, "walking is great... see more

I was recently asked to take an online personality test in order to secure an interview. I successfully completed it, but I’ve never heard of this and I’m not sure how I feel about it. Has anyone else had to do this? If so, did it help you move forward or did it prevent you from being offered an interview and/or job?

Yes I was asked to do an assessment test myself 4 DaVita I was going for a position first of all they don't even... see more

I’ve had two interviews with two different companies over the last several months. In both cases I made it to the 2nd interview and both times developed a great rapport with management. However in both cases I did not get a response from either saying yes or no. I have followed up with both but still nothing. It seems like people just have a hard time sending a rejection email or giving bad news. I would have been happy with a typical default... see more
