Ten minutes into the conversation, Samantha could see herself in a bigger office, making double her current salary, and working for the boss of her dreams. “I’m very interested!” she told the recruiter. And she began the process of interviewing for her dream job. Related: 8 Reasons Why You Don’t Hear Back From Recruiters Ten interviews and four months later, Samantha was certain this job was hers.

Excellent interview questions
Jobs for hiring but what about the interview? As an interview preparation expert and career coach I leverage my skills and experience as a recruiter, human resource professional, and Student of Life to guide clients in their interview preparation. I have a day job as a corporate recruiter and I conducted around 3,000 phone interviews for a number of different and diverse companies in 2010.
