"Critical Questions to Ask When Opportunity Knocks"

All your hard work has finally paid off and you have a job offer in hand. Now what do you do? Well, sometimes you just accept because your current economic situation demands it. But other times, you have the luxury of weighing the offer. Or, you may be fortunate (or some would say cursed) with evaluating two competing offers.

"Self-Examination Leads to Better Interviews"

If you’ve had even one interview that didn’t go well, it’s time to examine where you’re coming up short. There’s nothing like self-examination to figure out what went wrong and how you can “right” your next interview.

"Basic Interview Training: Dos and Don’ts"

Employers are apt to forgive some nervousness when you interview. However, nervousness is not an excuse to show up unprepared. Whether you “pass” or “fail” an interview depends on your preparation.

"Basic Interview Training: Preparing for Q&A"

When you get called for an interview, the employer is pretty sure you can do the job. Still s/he will evaluate your skills and experience by asking relevant questions. However, what the inter­viewer really wants to find out is if you will fit in.
