This is a tough time to be looking for a job. Many of my career success coaching clients are having difficulty getting interviews let alone landing a job. However, I heard a story not too long ago about a new MBA from NYU who got five job offers. He did it by creating unique resumes especially tailored to the job for which he was applying. This takes work, but in this fellow’s case, the hard work paid off.
Remember to interview them as well. You want to make sure that you truly want to work for this company; meaning you agree with their policies and corporate culture.

I’ll be listing more commonly asked questions every day this week with suggestions to help you get ready for your next interview. Next week, we’ll look at great ANSWERS to interview questions.
Where do you find the best people? It is important to be very aware of leaders within the industry. Also, the use of an food service executive recruiters or high-level employment agency is very useful. It is important to augment your own efforts.
Do you feel that you are being offered the right amount of money for the position? Do you feel that is an adequate pay for the city or state? While generally speaking, executive recruiters are not able to share the compensation range that the client provides, they will ask you what your current compensation is. This is to avoid wasting your time if we’re not in the right ballpark.
So, why have I spent half of my life writing recruiting software and trying to make it better? Because I love my work and the creativity of it and I know I can give a really good recruiter an edge. I know the recruiting firm will be successful with or without me but I can make a difference. I truly enjoy working with successful people and the rewards and appreciation mean so much more to me.
