How to Ace Your Next Interview and Open Job Listings

October 24th, 2017

Are you on the job hunt? Whether you’re looking to land your first position or make your next big career move, the interview is a crucial step in the process. Once you’re ready to meet with the hiring manager, it’s time to nail the job interview and wow them with your experience. During this time, these are three great questions to ask.

Ace Your Interview: 3 Questions to Ask

  1. How would you describe your company’s culture?

Beyond the job’s essential duties, company culture can make a big difference in whether or not you’ll enjoy your job. Filling a job opening requires finding a candidate who will be not only a good fit for the company, but thinks the company is a good fit for them. Employment is a two-way street, so be sure to know as much about the company’s culture, values, day-to-day activities and work environment as you can; the HR rep is a great person to ask. If possible, try and speak with a current employee or two in the hallways or break room as well. Read the rest of this entry »

How to Write a Cover Letter: 3 Tips

February 16th, 2016

There are many moving pieces to a successful job hunt, including filling out applications, sending resumes, fielding phone interviews, worrying about dress code, attending in-person interviews and sending thank you notes, but one of the most important parts is the cover letter. It’s your one (and if done incorrectly, only) opportunity to shine and make a great first impression on a hiring manager. How do you write a stellar cover letter that is sure to land you an interview? Read on for three tips.
