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

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?
