Comments Off on What isn’t on your resume?

Here is a great list of interview questions from Glassdoor. My students ask me all the time: “What do you think the recruiter will ask me?” I usually have 10 questions I can quickly give them, but this list is helpful for them to fully prepare. One question I have only had a couple of […]

Comments Off on The truth about company culture

How do you assess company culture before you start work? This is one of the hardest things to do as you are looking for a job.

Comments Off on Students need more help with their careers, not less

A recent study found that in these COVID-19 times, colleges and universities are planning to cut back on the career services that they offer students.
