Office hours will open and noon on August 24, 2021. If you have a question for me, email it to TheBigGameHunter(at) In the subject line, but the phrase “Office Hours.” During the Livestream, you can put it in chat.


Today’s questions are:

What’s the fastest way to get hired: applying directly on the company’s website, using LinkedIn, looking through job boards, going to an employment agency, or some other way?

Should you apply for a job based on reviews online?

Do job seekers need to show proof of vaccinations to apply for positions?

Is it normal to not get a response to follow up an email after an interview?

What professions or situations does a cover letter make a difference anymore, and why?

Can I re-apply for a job if there are vacancies/spots still open after my application has been turned down?

A new hire makes 30% more than I do for the same role and same experience. Should I renegotiate my salary or leave?

Why is it important for an employer to clearly spell out their expectations to the employee?

Why is it necessary for both participants to agree on a common timeframe typically expected for the assigned tasks?

How important is a cover letter for a software engineering candidate?
