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. One of my clients was required to undergo a video-webcam interview that he expected would contain five questions. After just one question, he found he was una...

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. However, you might still not have heard it or you might have encountered a behavioral interview without knowing that’s what it was going to be. You can prepare just as well for a behavioral interview as for a “normal” interview (whatever that is!). However, you do need to understand what they involve in order to do the most effe...
The 411 on Informational Interviews
by Kristen Carter - Aug, 2014
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...

Bad Job Interview Prospects There are times, though, when a potential job interview stands to do more harm than good for your overall job search succ...
Like it or Not, Video Conferencing is Here to Stay
by Glynn Cosker - Aug, 2014
When I was a teenager, I marveled at the future. According to most futurists, scientists, and—more importantly—movies, by now I’d be getting to my job in a flying car, using a “hover board” for fun, and taking weekend trips to Mars. That did not quite pan out as expected. However, one prediction for the future—that video phone calls would be mainstream by now—came true. Sort of. Not many people have a telephone with a mo...
