Both sides have a need. Companies need a solid employee and employees are looking for a meaningful opportunity.
Hiring is tough for companies, even though they seldom talk about it. Recognize your value and bring your best professional self to determine if a role is right for YOU.
Employers and interviewers are looking for problem solvers, or people with a problem-solving mindset.
What does this mean to a boss? They want someone that will try out reasonable solutions to issues on their own rather than always depending on colleagues or managers.

The way I prepare fore interviews is to develop a "story bank." These examples should be in your resume, and in the interview be prepared to elaborate...
Interviews will often have "tell me about a time when ___ " type questions. Write out beforehand a few scenarios that could potentially fit those types of questions. And if you don't have an experience that fits their question, it's totally acceptable to say something like, "While I don't have an example of an experience like that, if I did, I would do [x,y,x]."
So when one of these questions comes out, just pull out a story from the bank - it's even possible to tell a story from the bank if it's not related to the question being asked.
I applied for a position and was called by the recruiter of the company. I thought we really hit it off and she told me that out of 150 applicants I had been rated by the hiring team as having the best resume and most industry experience. I had mentioned that I had bern considering chsnging to a different industry. She then said, "no, we're not going to let you do that", She then scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager for top 5 applicants and she would choose for 3 to come in and interview with 4 different people. I had the phone interview and was called back for the face to face interview. I got to choose when I wanted to come in of the available times because I was "still # 1. I chose the fitst appt. I thought I had great interviews. They all went over the allotted times. I sent a thsnk you note to all. I didn't get the job. I asked for feedback so that I could hopefully improve. The recruiter said she hadn't gotten feedback but that she would and get back to me. She never has. I feel kind of mistreated. Like I was ahead through the 3rd quarter and then git blindsided. Any advice or opinions?
For a job for about a year now!? Why won't anybody hire me? I've been on interviews but, mostly all I get are scam/spam emails from these people saying they will give me millions of dollars if I help them??
I have a job interview this coming week which is awesome, but I am a single parent and the job’s hours are NOT flexible at all. I know I shouldn’t have even applied, but it’s a GREAT job and part of me didn’t think they would even be interested in me. Now what do I do?
Hi community, Just checking in I was crushed I had a sweet lil job lined up went through the telephone interview, first and second in person interview, the third interview where I got cut from the running, but got home today and had a message, another company is interested. So lets start this all over again. Wish me luck and remember don't give up there is something out there for all! God Bless and best wishes all.
