Get it in Writing.

You got the job offer, you are so excited. But did you really get the job offer?

Companies that are on the up and up will always, not sometimes but always do the following:
Send you a job offer, and what is included in that letter is Critical;. Keep that letter, make copies. Hopefully, you will not need to point anything out that is not being done.

Job offers can vary but they should at a minimum have the following information.

These behaviors can hurt your job hunt

It doesn't matter how extensive your experience and skills are, a new job hunt is always stressful. And in every time you compete for a competitive position, the margins of error are tiny; and you feel you must ace every interview.

It's easy to make mistakes when you have all of that pressure bearing down on you. Some are forgiving but others aren't such as answering I don't know to a question in an interview.

There are things and behaviors…

This could be a great lead-in question!

Lois, I really liked this question the writer offered near the end of the article: What does it take for an employee to succeed in this position/company?

I feel this could be an excellent lead-in question to ask, when the HR person or hiring manager says, So, what can we tell you about us? As they trot out their best stuff, you can be building your case for why you're a great fit with their idealized description,(if you truly feel you are!) and

That is a great point Ed Ausmus - nice one picking up on it. Having good lead-in questions for an interview where you know how you…

Scared and losing hope.

I left my job two months ago and despite having multiple interviews (including many that are still looking for people to this day), nothing has worked out for me. I don’t know if my problem is how I interview or something else that no one is telling me. Any tips or tricks to perform better in interviews would be greatly appreciated.

Up comming job interview

Well, this is a surprise but I already have a job interview coming up. Any tips or pointers would be great cause for some reason no matter how many times I've done this (at this point its a double digits) I usually get a no, silent treatment (never responding even after a thank you call or email), etc. Don't know why since I try to do it by the book from online, practice from friends and classmates, heck even rehearsed the damn thing.

Hope it went well Katrina Carlyon !

Never Lie In an Job Interview

As we all know, job interviews are intensely stressful occasions. If you REALLY want the job, the stakes are also incredibly high and you might feel a slight mistake could cost you the chance at landing the job. Given the pressure, some people are tempted to fudge their accomplishments and background a bit. They figure if adding a few years of experience that they'll triumph over other candidates, and what the interviewer doesn't know won't hurt…
