As a former recruiter, here are 5 questions I'd recommend asking any recruiter you talk to :) Why? To make sure the job you're discussing is legitimate, and to make sure it's a good fit for you. To impress them so they actually recommend you to the hiring manager and get you considered for the job. And to gets some hints about what the hiring manager is looking for to give you a big advantage when you do have that interview! Details are here:
Someone struggling to get hired said to me: “Often times in the interview I hear ‘you’re so talented, are you going to be happy here or are you going to be bored working here?’ which doesn’t make sense… because if they think I’m talented then why wouldn’t they want me on their teams?” Here’s the thing though- A ton of time and effort goes into hiring somebody new. Setting them up with benefits, training them, etc. If you leave within 1 year, most companies view it as a “loss” on their end. (for fulltime, permanent jobs). So it doesn’t matter how talented you are… if they think you’re going to be unhappy and leave, you will NOT get hired. It does make sense. This is something you absolutely need to be able to address in your interviews, if employers are asking.
Companies want to hire LEADERS - even if you're not applying for a leadership job. Even if you're not managing anyone (and never have). Why? Because they want someone who can grow in their organization. And someone who can lead projects and take initiative in their individual work. Here's how the answer the question of "What's your leadership style?" when they ask you in an interview
Overwhelmed by resume design options!!! A reader just emailed me. They had the general content for their resume but they looked online and saw all kinds of examples with infographics, headshots, colors, etc. They wanted to hire a resume writer to spice up their design. Here's the thing though - unless you're in the design industry... you're better off with a simple, clean-looking, "boring" resume design. The resume should draw attention to your skills and background, not distract from it. The text on the page is what they're reading, right? So choose a clean layout/design that makes it easy to read through your text. That's all! If you're in the US, you don't need a headshot. You don't need fancy colors or designs or 7 types of bullet points. Pick 1 header size. Black and white, or 1 "highlight" color for headers. 1 regular text size beneath the headers/sections. 1 type of bullet points. That's it!

Ever feel nervous/afraid to ask someone about something? Could be your boss, a friend, or anyone else. And then you ask, and you're thinking "Oh... that was really easy. What was I worried about?" Best solution is usually just go ask. Go say it.... put it out there... you'll feel relieved. And the longer you spend delaying, the more time you'll waste feeling distracted and stressed. :) This happened to me literally 5 mins ago, so just wanted to share!
A lot of the job seekers I help are not native English speakers, and I hear the same question/concern often: "I'm worried about my English in the interview. I don't feel confident." My advice: If you submitted your resume/CV and got the interview, they're interested in your technical skills and your background. Your training, your abilities, etc. Sure, if they wanted to just hire the best English speaker possible, they won't hire you. But that's not what they want for most jobs, especially in STEM fields that are so popular with foreign students and those who came to the US to work. So go into your interview and focus on showing them your skills and knowledge. Emphasize that! If you can communicate that, you’re fine. You’re not going to get hired for the job where they want the best English speaker. That’s okay. You ARE going to get hired for the job where they want the best scientist, software engineer, data analyst or whatever it is you do!
Someone emailed me and said they've been sending their resume to recruiters for 4+ months, but aren't getting responses. And they didn't know what to do... There are really only two options: 1. Completely change your messaging/approach. 2. Stop using recruiters. Apply directly to companies. Use your network, etc. Recruiters can't help everyone. It's a shame, but the reality is that Recruiters find people for jobs. They don't find jobs for people. It's a huge difference. BUT- there's a much bigger point here... and this applies to anyone, in any job search. If something isn't working, STOP. Do something else. Don't just keep repeating what's not working Test things. Experiment. That's what the top job seekers do.
🎲🎲Odds of being born: 1 in 10 followed by 2,685,000 zeroes If you're alive as a human, you already won the lottery. You could have never been born. You coulda been born as an Aardvark or Mosquito or something. Right? That doesn't sound great. And... If you're sitting in air conditioning while you work, if you know where you'll be sleeping tonight, and you know you'll have food to eat, you won the lottery again. Billions of people around the world cannot say "yes" to these things. If you were born with both arms and legs... and you can see and hear and walk... you just won again. You've won the lottery multiple times. What you do with it is up to you.
People who are failing think their mindset and attitude has nothing to do with it. People who are successful will usually tell you their mindset has a HUGE part in that. So... Which do you think is true?
