Job Interview Tips

Interview Questions and Answers

We know that this is a topic on everyone's mind. This is the most frequently asked question that we receive from job seekers. Not only do candidates want to get an idea of what questions they might be asked, they want some suggestions on how to answer. And, we aim to please! Knowing what to expect before you walk into an interview will help you prepare answers for the toughest questions you'll be asked.

Interview Questions to Ask

Interviewing is a two way street. The interview is your opportunity to "interview" your prospective employer. Find out more about the company and position by asking good questions. We'll tell you how. This is also an important section if you tend to struggle when the interviewer asks you what questions are on your mind. If you're a deer in the headlights, you won't make a good impression.

Interview Thank You Letters

As a recruiter, I'm amazed by how many professional people are willing to skip this step of the process. A well crafted thank you letter can keep you top of mind with hiring managers. Since some of us encounter "writer's block" when it comes to writing thank you notes. We'll show you some interview thank you letter samples that you can customize for your own use.
