Today, I’m adding a couple of quick interview tips to help you get through that holiday job search.
Older workers, who are going back to work, may not know that many interview questions that used to be routine are now illegal. This also applies to job applicants of any age. Don’t volunteer information about family, age, or health. If those questions come up, it can be awkward because you know you probably won’t get the job if you tell the interviewer his questions are illegal. You can handle it several ways. You may nicely respond that you prefer not to discuss information that’s unrelated to the job. If you are not comfortable doing that, use a friendly, positive tone and say, “I’m sure I won’t have any problem meeting your expectations”, or “I’m totally prepared to devote my time to my job”.
Resume Distribution Services
Don’t blast resumes to hundreds of companies that may not have an opening for someone with your skills. I’m sure there may be a success story someplace from someone doing that, but there are a lot more failures. A simple delete is all it takes, and your resume is never seen. You usually waste time and money paying for that type of service.
