A Cover Letter That “Goes To Work” For You…

Jimmy Sweeney

Jimmy Sweeney, President of CareerJimmy

When you want to exchange contact information with someone you meet, you probably pull out a business card, sometimes referred to as a calling card. Well, a cover letter is a bit like that. It’s the first document a hiring manager sees from you and it either makes a good impression or one that, like the letter itself—goes into the shredder.

Therefore, you’ll want to write a job search cover letter that goes to work for you—one that includes the essential details needed to evaluate your qualifications for the job the employer wants to fill. Details such as your name, employment background and experience, job skills, and level of education, as well as your interest in competing for the position, are of utmost importance. (more…)

3 Interview Questions New College Grads MUST ASK

Gail Palubiak

Gail Palubiak, Managing Partner of Lehman Gates Executive Search

As a recruiter, I have skin in the game since my reputation is on the line when my candidates go on interviews. If they shine then I shine, they get hired and I get paid. If they suck then I suck, they don’t get hired and I don’t get paid. See the parallel? It was imperative for the success of my candidates, as well as for my own success, that I become a voracious student of what it takes to land a job.

I realized that most people do a lot of homework learning how to answer interview questions (i.e. What’s your greatest weakness? How do you handle conflict? Where do you see yourself in 3 years? Oh, and of course…Tell me about yourself). By now your college counselor has grilled you about the importance of a well delivered elevator pitch, right? There are other valuable resources on your career placement intranet and on the internet to help you prepare answers for interview questions. That’s not exactly the problem (don’t get me wrong, it can be a problem but I’ll save that for a later post). But one of the most prevalent problems is how few people come to an interview equipped with their own “knock-‘em-off-their-feet” questions. I’m not talking about questions that every other candidate is asking; What keeps you up at night? What’s your company’s greatest competitive advantage/weakness? Granted, these are helpful but you need to come to the table with questions that will elevate you in the minds of the hiring managers. (more…)
