When the Initial Interview is Done by an Interviewing Authority
Since you don't have a lot of business experience, you may not be aware that often, especially for an entry-level position, the initial interview will be conducted by a third-party instead of the hiring authority. The interviewer who does not have hiring authority is usually going to screen out far more candidates than he or she screens in.When the Initial Interview is Done by an Interviewing Authority
4 Generations in Your Work Force
For the first time, the increase in life expectancy means there will be four generations of people, and therefore candidates, in the work force. Those include the “traditionalists" born between 1922 and 1943, the “boomers” born between 1943 and 1960, the “Gen-Xers" born between 1960 and 1980, and the "millennial" born after 1980. Each generation has a different perspective of the role of work/career in their life.4 Generations in Your Work Force
But I Left Him a Voicemail
So, you diligently practice this presentation, yet when you call, all you get is a voicemail. You will have to decide whether to leave a voicemail – it is debatable...But I Left Him a Voicemail
Round 2: Questions YOU Ask
The strategy for follow-up interviews is not a lot different from the strategy used in the initial interviews. To a certain extent, you're going to do exactly what you did in the initial interview – with a couple of added steps that give you the advantage. The process is very simple, but most people don't think to do it.Round 2: Questions YOU Ask
Put on a Suit to Make a Phone Call!
If any of these tips seem obvious, know that I have seen candidates fail to execute each one. If you want to compete in the adult world for a good job, look and act like an adult capable of performing that job. Here are a few basic requirements:Put on a Suit to Make a Phone Call!
Do YOU Know What the Employers Want
You must be aware of the hiring authorities “buying” motivations and how to sell to them. There are basically four questions any hiring organization asks of every candidate, whether they are applying for an entry-level position or to be the company’s next President. Those questions are:Do YOU Know What the Employers Want
"Do You Have Any Questions for Me?"
Toward the tail end of the interview, you're likely to get this question. Remember how you researched the company before the interview? Now is when it is going to pay off."Do You Have Any Questions for Me?"
Hey! Hire me!
The average number of interviews required to get the job offer is three. I have worked with companies that conducted as few as one and as many as ten interviews of a candidate. That is ten different interviews with ten different sets of hiring/interviewing authorities. (That depth of process is usually associated with very high positions – VP level and above.)Hey! Hire me!
Tell Your Story
An excellent technique to employ in the interview is tell stories that support the attributes you've applied to yourself. It is likely that in a group interview, especially if it is more than three people, you're going to be addressing people with different personalities. The best way to deal with all of those types of people in the same environment is to tell stories. Stories bypass the listener’s conscious resistance and biases.Tell Your Story
The Interview Doesn't End With the Interview
The first thing you should do after the interview, when you get in your car, it is to take out the notes you took during the interview and write down a summary of the interview on this form.The Interview Doesn't End With the Interview
Get Ready for the Phone Screener
With so many candidates from which to choose, employers often use a telephone interview to screen through a large number of people. It has now become a de facto terminator of prospective candidates. This is especially true for entry-level positions.Get Ready for the Phone Screener
The Real Power Behind Resumes and Cover Letters
This fact is so simple and yet rarely used: Resumes with a cover letter are most effective when they're supported by an introductory telephone conversation with the hiring authority. Your resume is 85% more likely to be read if the prospective hiring authority associates your voice with the document. Remember the cold call I discussed earlier.

Trust the Process
I know of one young man who graduated from an Ivy League university. He wanted to get into the investment banking business. In the very middle of an economic recession, he was determined to find a job. With my help, he devised a script to get the attention of any investment banking organization that would listen to him.Trust the Process
The Virtual Wastebasket of Emailed Resumes
There are 56,000,000 resumes on the Internet. It is estimated that for every job posting on the Internet, on more than 40,000 job boards, the companies receive 275 resumes. The probability of you being hired by chasing job postings isn't very great. This is especially true if you simply e-mail your resume and wait for a response.The Virtual Wastebasket of Emailed Resumes
Psst, Hey Buddy... Wanna Hot Job?
Job search advice is almost as plentiful as weight loss solutions these days, it seems – and just as effective. Books, newspaper columns, radio shows, web articles, blogs, and career sites are just some of the places offering their wisdom. In the last week, I read competing articles on two of the largest web portals that listed “myths” about job searches. Several myths were in both articles, and on two of those, the authors had opposing answers – basically, one said “Do this,” and the other said “Don't do this.”Psst, Hey Buddy... Wanna Hot Job?
