Interviewing. From the other side of the table

Time is on my side.

Rather than throwing out mail that comes
in the mailbox,
I can look at it for real
relevance.  Dice sent a career
related
envelope offering freebies, but I was more

interested in John Vlastelica’s tips for
screening resumes.

You should be too.

RESUMES
1.  Not only are they looking for keywords,
but also
for related accomplishments.  So,
if you can learn
specifically about the job
description it could be
beneficial to relate
some detail in a research summary

or achievement statement or business outcome.

INTERVIEWS
2.  What is the nature of an applicant’s
motivation
?
In a tight job market, some just need a job. 
Others
really desire to work for your company,
serve your
customers and work in your field. 
So, understand that
interviewers, at all phases,
will be exploring:
 
why should we hire you
  why do you want to work for this

company?  and
  a
good fit of styles.

3.  John relates about companies’ need to
protect
their brand.  We, as candidates, have
the same
need and should choose to accept an
off based on how
we were courteously and
respectfully treated.  We are
interviewing
them as much as they are interviewing us
