In the year 2019, what is the proper time to wait for a decision to an interview you just had? If you are told during the Interview a decision will be made by end of week, should one assume that if you don't hear anything back by end of week, that you have not been selected for the position? I usually send a thank you for the Interview email within 24 hours of having my Interview. What is the proper time to wait to email regarding the status... see more

It seems that confidence is a quality many struggle with when interviewing. How do you build up confidence? How do you maintain the comfort that comes with knowing you know all you need to know to ace the interview?

1.) Are you qualified for the position you're interviewing for? Makes sure your education/licensure/experience matches or surpasses what the employer is seeking. Don't come in to the interview unsure of what the jobs actually... see more

What can or can not a former employer say when they receive a reference call.

They can only ask when you started and your end date. What was your position when you were there and salary..

So my interview went well. But for the first time ever. I was told to call her in a week. She didn’t say she or they would be in touch. She said for me to call her directly. Is that good or bad?

Its bad. If they wanted you you would know. Theyre stringing you along because they might pick you if nothing... see more

Hi, I have been searching for a job now for several months. I have had several interviews and some offers, however, the salary range I am looking for from these employers will not pay my salary range. I am 4 to 5 years away from retirement. Just trying my best to be patient and hope the right fit and company with the right salary will come into my radar as i apply.. My thinking is you pay for quality work performance. Much harder for middle aged... see more

wait until you are 69 and freshly retired - no one wants you.

I had a virtual interview this past week and i'm so pissed off! I had never done a video interview before and had no idea what to expect!

The video was all messed up and I felt like I was moving around the whole time because I was so nervous about the video! I felt super awkward and uncomfortable.

What are some tips and advice so that I don't mess it up in the future???

Ok y’all, it’s been several weeks, but, I have had an “over the phone” interview with SPAR Merchandising, isn’t it legal for them to go through the whole interview, ask if you’re still interested, then the very first question in the hiring process, ask for your SSN? I’m sorry, but, I’m not giving out my Social over the phone!! Wouldn’t this bother you too? This has bothered me since then, sorry...

I agree that question needs to be done in person, they take it and make a copy of it.

I've been contacted by so many recruiters only for them to disappear on me. Either on the phone, in person, or video they tell me what a wonderful resume I have, they think they can help, blah, blah, blah, then I don't hear squat. It makes so angry that recruiters put you through all of this then leave you hanging. I'm unemployed. I'm not going through this process for fun. I need a job so why they heck are you contacting me and wasting my time... see more

I have a job interview on Wednesday and the interview prep questions were overwhelming. It is going to take me 2 days to prepare for this interview even though I am qualified for this position. I'm also worried about the job itself, I keep telling myself that I just need to get through the first 5 days then I'll be fine.
