Career Coach Office Hours: November 28, 2023

By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter
I answered questions about #jobsearch. You can also message me on Linkedin before the show and I will answer it, too.


00:00 Intro 02:49 Why is it important to keep your resume up to date?

04:59 Describe the primary differentiators between successful job searchers and those who struggle. Is it the consistency of the search, the attitude, or the follow-up? What are the tip-offs that give you a leading indicator of future success?

11:58 Are you able to see on LinkedIn who searches your name or views your profile?

14:10 I worked in one role for companies for a long time (like 20 years) and switched to something I like doing 5 years ago. How do I show that on my resume and LinkedIn profile?

16:54 Offered a comment about his/her going to a job fair and how it turned out well for them.

18:48 What would you do if you were hired but you didn’t like your job?

23:25 How come I applied for 500 jobs but did not get 1 interview?

25:35 How best do you answer this question in an interview? How much is your salary expectation?

28:52 I began the outro

29:58 What are you seeing as the number of resumes people send out before they get interviews?

30:47 Verbally, I can defer and deflect but when I complete applications, often I can’t. What do I do?

31:50 Finishing my outro
