Career Coach Office Hours: September 17 2021 |

Today, I answer several questions about job search, hiring more effectively, managing, leading, and workplace issues.

Add your question to chat and I will try to include it in today’s show. In the future, you can email it in advance to TheBigGameHunter(at)

What happens to washed-up programmers (40 years old and over) who don’t move up to management?

Should I put my experience as a lead developer for a hobby project on my resumé?

Why is modifying a resume the hardest and most time-consuming part of the job application process for me? What are some tips to get through it more efficiently?

Do I follow up on a job application or interview?

What’s a red flag that you need to find a new job?

Do employers check references before or after an offer?

How do you politely negotiate salary via email? (time is the enemy of all deals)

How do I catch a lie in an interview?

If an employer has a low seniority employee that is a high performer, and another employee that is long term, but never excels in their job, what can ensure the newer employee has an incentive to be a high performer?

Do interviews predict performance?
