Career Coach Office Hours: November 14 2023

By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter
I answered questions about #jobsearch. The next show will be November 28, 2023, at noon Eastern.

Standing Out on an Interview

00:00 Intro

03:36 I have a planned (and already paid for) vacation in February. When should I bring it up?

05:10 Should I reach out again?

07:22 The job market in my field is slowing down. What is the best way to move forward?

10:37 I worked for 6 months and was promoted to a more senior role but my responsibilities are the same. Can I just avoid the junior title?

14:04 What should I do if the interviewer doesn’t respond to my messages?

16:32 What is the difference between reverse recruiting and traditional recruiting?

17:51 I am 63 and just laid off. Is my age working against me?

22:12 In a job interview, what’s the ideal response length to the “tell me about yourself” question?

23:55 If you’re told on a job interview that you’ve been offered the job, you say yes, they shake your hand and say welcome aboard, but that you won’t be able to start until the end of next month, is that enough certainty to quit your other job now?

26:37 In a multiple interview round, if you are asked the same question by different interviewers, is it better to repeat your answer or have different answers?

28:43 Outro
