Master Your Phone Interview

Friday, March 2, 2018
Phone Interview

The interview process is a major part of any job search.  It’s easy to get caught up thinking about what to wear, how to respond to questions, and what kinds of behaviors to avoid when you meet your potential employer face to face.  However, before you even get to the in-person interview, you likely will have at least one phone interview with a recruiter, HR manager, or hiring manager—if not all three.

Want To Get Your Point Across? Consider Personality Type

Thursday, February 8, 2018
personality types

We all want to be understood, and it can be so frustrating when it feels like what we’re saying falls on deaf ears. Have you ever tried to communicate something important to a colleague, classmate, supervisor, and family member, only to feel as if you’re not getting through?

It turns out that someone’s personality type factors into how we should frame our message. The way we approach an Optimist, for example, is very different from how we should talk to a Problem Solver.
