What would you say in interview if they ask what don’t you like about your job??
I read this blog about new hires – it made perfect sense to me – so why do employers terminate new hires in 90 days??
My last job was moved to the northwest US and I was not willing to travel. It has only been 40 days but I am going stir crazy. I ideally want to end up in your part of the country, but I can only find agencies that are just looking to fill a hole. Any advice?
I have obtained an email address from a person who works at an organization I’ve been wanting to work at for years. He provided it to me himself. How should I word the email so I won’t scare him away. This is for networking purposes
I lied about my salary history during an interview and now they want to see salary proof of last 3 years before they hire me. Would I get caught if I faked my salary documents?
How do recruiters pick candidates to reach out to?
Hiring managers and recruiters, what do you think while reading resume line “looking for a challenging position”?
Why does every company I apply to in my neck of the woods seem to be looking for purple squirrels even with the tight job market?
Hey everyone! I’m looking for some advice on a situation. I applied for my dream job and company back in August and was brought in for two rounds of interviews. I didn’t make the final cut. The boss to the position I applied for is also a dream boss. When I asked for feedback on why I didn’t move to the final round she had the most honest but encouraging response. The same job was just posted again on Friday, the person they hired isn’t there anymore. My dilemma is in my cover letter. I reread it and I still feel that it is strong and what I said was true and shows my passion for the job. I’m only hesitant that once I reapply they may want to see something different or think I didn’t put effort in if it’s the same. Thoughts? I do have a good relationship with the boss still and do plan on emailing her to let her know I’m applying again.
What is the best way to get recruiters and hiring managers feedback for why you weren’t chosen for a job?
If a job seeker walked into your company dressed to impress with a résumé in hand, would someone meet with him or her on the spot?
