Career Coach Office Hours: August 13 2021 |

Why do some recruiters/employers constantly repost job ads?

A person working for a US government subcontractor has been relieved of duties. However, they are still on payroll for another six weeks. What should I tell people with whom I am still interviewing? If I tell them what happened, I am at least partially to blame. If I don’t tell them when they find out, they will hold it against me. The subtext is a new manager joined and picked someone else as her favorite And has eliminated everyone else. I can’t prove it but when I mentioned my husband (I am male), her attitude toward me changed and she started to push me out the door

Is LinkedIn still a professional networking platform or has it turned into just another social media site?

Should you disclose to potential employers during the application/interview process that you are planning to go to graduate school in the next few years?

Have you ever accepted a job offer, only to bitterly regret taking the job later, once you’d started? What happened?

Is it a bad idea to give a work sample to interviewers even though they do not ask for it?

How would you professionally state why you no longer want to go to a job interview?

How should I reach out to the hiring manager after being rejected the first time?
