You went to the Chicago job fair, you apply for what seems like a great job, you go the interview. Remember, an interview should always be a two-way conversation. By asking the interviewer your own questions, that's how you get a sneak peak of what the job is like, and whether it's truly right for you.

So, what questions can you ask during an interview?

  • ๐Ÿ“… What would my workplace goals be during the first month?
  • ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿคโ€๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿพ How big is the team that Iโ€™d be working with?
  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป What can you tell me about the work environment?
  • ๐Ÿชœ Is there a pathway for career progression?
  • ๐Ÿ˜“ What are some of the challenges you think a new employee will face?

There are much more ideas for questions on The top 25 questions to ask interviewers

@Rochelly Fajardo This is a great find! It is so important to make sure that the interview goes smoothly. I have given quite a few interviews and I can always tell if the person is geniune by their body language and their facial expressions. Also, here is a great article that I found on mistakes to avoid during the interview process. https://www.jobcase.com/articles/interview-mistakes-to-avoid

Have you ever contacted a potential employer and never heard from them again? Maybe you submitted your resume, had a phone screening, and even reached an interview opportunity just to be abandoned, ignored, and/or ghosted for NO reason.

Unfortunately, youโ€™ve been a victim of whatโ€™s called โ€œemployer ghosting.โ€

It can be confusing and upsetting when you don't hear back from a company. If a potential employer has ghosted you, here are some steps you can take...

If youโ€™re currently searching for jobs and donโ€™t want to rush into something that isnโ€™t a good fit. A great option to consider is to take on some part-time job. There are several benefits:

  • Gain some income and possibly even benefit coverage
  • Build job experiences so you donโ€™t have a gap in your resume
  • Give yourself more flexibility to explore what is a great fit
  • Expand your network that might help with your future search

Here are some part-time job options you can explore:

You came to the job fair, you were prepared with your resume, you talked to people and applied to a few opportunities. Now would be the time for follow up with a hiring manager about that job. Even if you weren't able to make it to the fair, how do you find out who to follow up with and what to say?

Here's a great resource that can help you find the manager's email:

Consider this at a fair there are literally 1000โ€™s of people applying for a couple of jobs at each company. You need to be proactive if you expect a chance. Find out the person doing the hiring. Target letters and phone calls to them. Even consider retargeting your resume directly to the job. Include excerpts in your letters. Be a pest.
