9 Great Ways To Answer A ‘Stupid’ Interview Question
its #Monday Why do interviewers ask strange interview questions like, “What animal would you be?” They want to throw you off your game and get candid answers (they know you’ve practiced good answers to interview questions) and they really want a peek into your personality and thought process.

Your Resume Has 2 Minutes Or Less To Get Attention
An overwhelming majority of recruiters and HR professionals invest less than two minutes reviewing a candidate’s resume, according to a survey CareerBuilder recently completed. Additionally, almost 20% of the HR professionals surveyed stated that they invest 30 seconds or less. Talk about a shrinking window of time to capture the employer’s attention! So, what’s a job seeker to do? 1.

Furthermore, don’t be vague! Use significant metrics, accomplishments, and...

Struggling to convey your distinguished career in a compelling executive resume? looking for jobs for seniors. If you believe your resume is disjointed and fails to tell employers who you really are, you’re probably right.
