To land the interview, it takes more than just a solid resume. Out goes the old traditional job search where companies look at a resume, picks a few candidates to interview and hire one person from that process. Nowadays companies are strapped for time and hiring power to look at stack of resumes.
Today companies identifying potential candidates by other means, such as :
*Reference/Background Check - Your references may be checked before the... see more
I recently asked six different recruiters and hiring managers to tell me what the biggest mistake applicants make during the interview process is. If they repeated a mistake given by the preceding recruiter/hiring manager, I asked them to give me a different mistake.
Here are the six mistakes that could end an interview, or lead an applicant to not get a second interview/job offer...

I have worked at my retail job for 18yrs. as they raise the starting wage they do not adjust an increase in our wages. I was told they only invest in new talent, not the tenor staff. They do expect us to train all the new hires and keep our mouths shut. I have witnessed the younger management set up the older managers and then write them up for doing what they told them to do. They keep this up till they retire or quit. They want us all gone so... see more

So I took a job in a big chain fast food joint just to have a little bit of money coming in to help my family. I worked there for a total of 3 days. Now my pride is not too big for a fast food job. A big world wide company was my very first and only job for 15 years. And I started as crew and worked my way up to where I was and made really good money. But it was taking over my life and getting between my marriage because of how much time I was... see more
I just got hired at The Habit Burger Grill 2 weeks ago. The coworkers there were chill, the managers were ok? But they gave me less information about the job. My first week they gave me 3 days of work, the second week also 3 days, but this week they are giving me 2 days working there, which is odd and (ridiculous) because in my application I ask for 2 days off and 5 days working there. My experience at the habit was a bit complex than my previous... see more
Father of 7 looking for a career hard worker ready to learn everyday
For me, life is about experience and growth. In order to do that effectively, you need to train yourself mentally and physically to adapt; the most amazing human skill. The best way to do this is to put yourself in uncomfortable situations and unknown territories. This will force you to be aware, adapt and learn as much as you can and make connections between previous knowledge and memories. This skill along with the drive to become successful... see more
