by Michelle Dumas - Sep, 2012
The video interview. Have you been invited to interview in this way yet? It seems the more we learn, the less we know. And the more technology we have, the more technology we have to worry about. This even applies to a job search. Once upon a time, the classified ads, a strong printed resume, and some good references (or people who knew people) were all the tools you needed to effectively compete for a job. No more. ...

Salary and Benefits “Secrets” in the Interview-to-Offer Process
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2012
Salary questions are probably one of the biggest concerns I hear from clients and potential clients (with benefits being a related issue). Two sides of the coin could be involved: (1) the salary history and/or salary expectations of the job seeker; (2) what the company will probably pay and how to get an idea of what that amount (or range) might be. I always recommend that job seekers do their research to find out things like ...

Tips for Multiple Interviews
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2012

Over the years, it has become increasingly common to be put through a series of interviews before you get an offer–if you get one at all.

by Marcia Robinson - Aug, 2012
Some job seekers believe they don't stand a chance to be hired for certain jobs because they don't believe they are "excitable" enough. As one job seeker shared with me. "I am not the bubbly-jumping-out-of-my-seat-type."
