When I managed a small team at my last job, I noticed one of my favorite employees was working on their resume while ON the clock. I spoke with my colleague and told her it was inappropriate to look for a new job while working. At the same time, I wondered why she wanted to leave, and what I could do to improve her job experience.

This week I saw a different type of story online. An employee had updated her resume via LinkedIn while OFF the clock. The next day, the manager asked her why she was looking for a new job. This manager had been spying on the employee.

The #1 way I prepare for interviews

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.

How do you prep for #interviews? #JobSearch #NextJob

I just came across this article, and it's so interesting to me. I haven't really done these things in the past:

  1. Make your online presence impeccable
  2. Customize your resume
  3. Be prepared for this tricky interview question
  4. Seek out mentors
  5. Don't be afraid to show your enthusiasm

Do you do any of these things, OR something else in your #JobSearch?

This is an INTERESTING article about the future of retail work. Why don't companies value retail workers like other fields? Could that change in the future.

This is a good read...

If you don't have a four-year college degree, you're hardly alone. The majority of US working age adults do not.

your chances may be better than you think, thanks to a growing network of white-collar apprenticeship programs that lead to jobs at blue chip employers, including big tech players like Google, Amazon and Salesforce.
