Job Interview Wisdom...that Delivers

career start button

This website is much more than job interview tips. The interview process is often cold, stressful, and painfully slow.

  • Why don't companies call you back with timely feedback?
  • What's taking them so long to make a hiring decision?
  • How often should you call a company for feedback?
  • Is it OK to send the hiring manager an email?

If you are a recent grad or the victim of downsizing...How can you project an attitude of enthusiasm and confidence when you're nervous and self-conscious?

There are lots of websites and books about preparing for a job interview. Unfortunately, most of them lack depth and warmth.

  • Do you know the top 10 interview questions of all time?
  • What are appropriate questions for you to ask without shooting yourself in the foot?
  • What is your best course of action after your job interview?

Three reasons why I am uniquely qualified to help you stand out and win job offers:

  1. I have counseled thousands of job seekers over my 18 year career as an executive recruiter.

    My greatest success is not all the placements I've made over the years, but knowing my advice gave job seekers the advantage in landing a great job.

    This site will teach you the best way to navigate through the job interview process with several true stories to illustrate what works and what doesn't work.

  2. Prior to my recruiting career, one of the greatest trials of my life came when I lost my job. I was out of work ...for 7 long months. I experienced a roller coaster ride of emotions from overconfidence to downright despair.

    Perhaps you're experiencing the same things I did:

    • Financial set backs
    • Cold insensitive interviewers
    • The pain of frequent rejection
    • No promised call backs
    • Silly interview questions
    • Fair-weather friends
    • ...and sleepless nights quietly praying to be rescued
  3. As a veteran executive recruiter, I continue to work closely with hiring authorities to broker offers and recruit top talent.

    After every interview I ask hiring managers what they liked about my candidates and what they didn't like about them.

    Hiring managers are always very direct and frank with me...unlike they would be with you if you asked them for the same feedback.

    I hear the good, bad, and ugly about how an interview went.

    Believe me, hiring managers aren't bashful about telling me what's on their mind.

    Over the years, a consistent pattern has emerged as to how managers make hiring decisions. If you know this pattern, you will definitely have a leg up on your competition during the interviewing process.

    This edge can make all the difference in winning an offer.

Wise old saying: It's not necessarily the best candidates who win job offers; it's the candidates who interview the best.
