Uhh yeah, wrong answer. How do you recover?

Wrong Interview Answer

What do you do when you realize that you provided the wrong interview answer? What do you do when you realize we could have answered an interview question more effectively after we have left the interview.

We have all done it.

Job Reference follow up http://hrnasty.com/job-reference-follow-up/ http://hrnasty.com/job-reference-follow-up/#respond Thu, 14 Jun 2018 03:51:03 +0000 http://hrnasty.com/?p=10137 job reference follow up

A beautiful gesture!

Job reference follow up

You would be surprised how many candidates unintentionally burn bridges with their references after the job was landed. Don’t think it was you? If we are not reaching out with updates to these important contacts, that bridge may be burned. Today’s post is part three in a series of three posts on the topic of handling our references: how to strengthen the bond between us the candidate and our reference.

Direct what is said in your references checks

Controlling the reference checks conversation

For most of us, the reference checks stage of a job search either scare us shitless or we don’t realize how important this step is. Depending on our personality type, we think of one of two things when it comes to reference checks.

Is your recruiter able to reach the 2 job references you provided?

How many job references should I provide? 

Congrats! We landed a job offer and the hiring company is going to check your job references. Today, I want us to think about providing more than the ho-hum, standard 2-3 job references that the hiring company requested.

The critical missed step when candidates ask question in a job interview http://hrnasty.com/candidate-interview-question/ http://hrnasty.com/candidate-interview-question/#respond Thu, 24 May 2018 01:54:23 +0000 http://hrnasty.com/?p=10112

This interviewer is thinking, “He had the job until he asked me these candidate interview questions.”

Today’s post explains how candidates can have a great interview. The hiring manager is thinking “this candidate is the one”.  Then, in the last 10 minutes, the candidate loses the job because of the candidate interview questions they asked.

When it comes to the job search

Why less is more in the job search

Yes, less is more in the job search. I know that I have been blogging about job search for close to 10 years, so in my opinion, there is obviously a lot going on. No doubt, there are a lot of steps.

Interview tardiness: It’s midnight, do you know how to get to your interview tomorrow? http://hrnasty.com/interview-tardiness/ http://hrnasty.com/interview-tardiness/#respond Thu, 19 Apr 2018 05:00:42 +0000 http://hrnasty.com/?p=10000 Interview tardiness

Running late for an interview is never a good thing.

Interview tardiness

I recently interviewed a number of candidates and a number of them committed the sin of interview sins. Interview tardiness. Obviously, the words late and interview should never be used in the same sentence. I can fix a broken watch. I can’t fix tardy.

Job application follow up?

Are you hearing from employers after you turn in your cover letter and resume? Or are you like many who never hear back from the hiring company and end up dismayed with the application system?

I only know what I hear about. My position is working within the recruiting system.

Are you setting the right expectations with your manager?

If you have never said “no” to your manager, you are probably NOT setting expectations. This post is for you. If one of your direct reports has not pushed back on the amount of work you have given them,
