Video Interviews: Challenges & Opportunities
by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2014
A while ago I mentioned the idea of “canned” video interviews that some companies were instituting in their hiring process (make that screening process). Now I have a first-hand client story that points out some of the perils these interviews pose for job seekers.

Behavioral Interviews: What Are They & How Do You Handle Them?
by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2014
The term “behavioral interview” isn’t new. It’s been around since at least the 1990s, I believe.

One of the new networking strategies that you may have heard buzz about is informational interviews. This term was developed by Richard Nelson Bolles, author of What Color Is Your Parachute?, and its purpose is to gather information on a particular industry and/or specific company you may wish to work at one day. Think of it as an information gathering session, not an opportunity to ask for a job. This is an excellent strategy...
