This post from TheMuse.com is probably one of the most helpful reads regarding the joy of interviewing for jobs. As I am in this situation at the moment, I thought I would share.

Wouldn’t it be great if you knew exactly what questions a hiring manager would be asking you in your next job interview?

While we unfortunately can’t read minds, we’ll give you the next best thing: a list of the 31 most commonly asked interview questions and answers.

While we don’t recommend having a canned response for every interview question (in fact, please don’t), we do recommend spending some time getting comfortable with what you might be asked, what hiring managers are really looking for in your responses, and what it takes to show that you’re the right man or woman for the job.

Take a look at these questions and other articles helpful to job seekers. Good luck, friends!

Back on the horse again…

Today, I have a callback interview at a company that is trustworthy, largest and oldest bank in DE Valley, and almost 200 years old. They also have a heavy presence in the community; the company has programs for students K-12, the homeless, and more.

I’m ready to blow them away.

Don’t let a denial stall your job search.

After hearing back from an employer I interviewed with that I did notget the job. Of course, this saddened me. Honestly, it pretty much depressed me for days. But I didn’t want to dwell on it. So I wrote an article addressing this on LinkedIn. Here’s a sneak peak.

“We’ve all been there. Excelled in your phone interview, displayed confidence in your on-site interview, and showed the company that you were the right fit and you were excited to continue on in the application process.

And then it happens. Be it a polite phone call or an email. “We have chosen to pursue another candidate/applicant”. It stings. When you thought all your ducks were in a row, you’d aced all the important interview questions and asked some of your own.”

I hope this helps at least one person in the same struggle as I am. I would love to speak with people who like to discuss careers and opportunities for growth. It’s very enticing.
