There are 10 questions I’m going to answer today. They are:

How do you convince a hiring manager that you would be an excellent investment as an out-of-state hire?
Why would a hiring manager put me to handwrite a job application letter as she watched me? Regardless of the fact that I had dropped a typed one several weeks ago.
Why do companies look at job gaps as a warning to not help someone get a job despite not knowing the whole story on why this is happening?
Why do some jobs require a cover letter while others don’t?
What are the disadvantages and advantages of telephone interviews for an interviewer and an interviewer?
Why do employers on Indeed expect people to do assessments in addition to a resume and cover letter?
How do you get executive recruiters to notice you?
Who could be viewing my LinkedIn profile on a weekend night?
How do you respond to “Why do you want to work at our company” when actually you just want the job?
How can one make a good resume?
