Career Coach Office Hours May 14 2021

EP 2135 Today, I’m going to cover a number of questions I received this week:  

Do employers really check your voting records during a hiring process? Also, do employers ask who you vote for or your political affiliation? How would you respond?  

Why is it difficult to get a job for IT people once they have more than 15 years of experience?  

When applying for jobs on Facebook, should I attach a resume, or is it okay if I don’t?  

What specific and general mistakes should you prepare yourself to avoid during a virtual interview? How do you make your skills, experience, education, and temperament stand as a good fit with the potential employer during the virtual interview?   

What value does HR serve when interviewing applicants? Don’t the hiring managers ultimately choose who to hire?  

What do job recruiters just “get” that job seekers just don’t?  

If you have a question, message me at TheBigGameHunter(at), and in the subject line put the phrase: Office Hours”
