Peter Clayton recently posted "The Job Interview..." where he discussed the ubiquitous Candidate Experience. After a few decades of recruiting, I know that the CE is a by-product of both sides of the fence. The Good, the Bad, and the really freakin' Ugly.

I’m working on a blog post on job interviews — from the employer side of the desk.

Rich Peterson believes behavioral based interview questions are the most popular and overused among recruiters.
The purpose of behavioral questions is to identify how a potential new employee would act in future situations. Behavioral questions are always open ended, leaving the interviewee to fill in the blanks. To answer these questions:

By putting you on the spot, your answer gives the interviewer an idea of how you present yourself in a social and professional setting and a glimpse of what you think the most important facts about yourself…Continue

Many Accounting, Finance, IT and Office Support job seekers have surely been ignored after the submission of a job application – especially via Internet job boards. We’ve discussed the dismal reality of depending on this employment search method and, quite frankly, an employer’s lack of response in such situations is reasonable.

If that got your attention, good. I don’t know any other way to say it; I hate it when people talk too much. This is a personal issue of mine, a lack of tolerance, perhaps; but mind-numbing talking can affect one’s job search and performance/acceptance at work.

One of the beauties of contract placements is that they happen FAST. Often interviews are conducted over the phone, and the contractor is at work within in a matter of days rather than the weeks or even months it can take with direct hires.
