Tough Interview Questions to Ask the Interviewers

If you want to find out what prospective employers think of you, don't wait till you don't get a job and then ask the recruiter for feedback. It's a litigious society, so they won't share it (I never did in my 10+ years of recruiting. That's why it's so great to be on the other side coaching job seekers – I can say what I really think and actually help someone).

The recruiter will say something generic like how much they liked you but the field was just so competitive. Furthermore, at this point, you are already closed out for the job. You can't use any feedback you do get because your next interviews will be for different jobs with different players. Instead of generic feedback received too late, you need to get personal and specific feedback that you can act upon before a decision is made.

Who else are you considering for this position, and how do I compare? This is the job seeker's version of "What other companies are you talking to and how will you decide?" Employers always ask who else you're considering because if they are still judging you, they want to see how connected you are, and if they already like you, they want to know how they can sell you based on specifically what else you have to choose from. So use the same tactic on them, and see what other backgrounds they are considering and how you can position yourself over and beyond the competition your employer has to choose from.

Have I answered all of your questions, or is there something still outstanding that would make you reluctant to bring me on board? Even if they don't detail the second part, you can get a sense if it's yes or no by how they react to the question. In most cases, you will get some details. The interviewer will ask for clarification on a project you did, or on the reporting structure of a previous job and exactly where you fit. Whatever they ask is what is still a question for them, and this is what you must address in your follow-up.

 
What is your timetable for making a decision, and who is on the decision team? Once you get through the two questions above and you know how to position yourself, you still need to know how quickly you need to act and whom you have to influence. If the employer is convening a meeting of the decision-makers to discuss the finalists next week, and the question they have about you is your marketing ability, then you need to get a marketing proposal in front of the decision-makers by next week. If the meeting is tomorrow, then you need to messenger it tomorrow.

Do not go to interviews, write a boilerplate thank you note, and throw your hands up in the air (or go down on your knees to pray). You can still influence the outcome if you get feedback you can use and do something with it.

Top Tips to help you get a Job: Proven Job Search Methods

If you need a job, there you need to get smart, remember there are many other people to compete with. Here are 5 tips to help you get hired faster...

      1. Work Your Network: Many jobs are never advertised on job boards or other media sources. Keep in touch with your network of contacts—and let them know you’re looking so they can keep you in mind.    
      2. Less is More: Don’t feel like you have to apply to every opportunity that comes along. Instead, focus on a select handful of positions—or companies—that are right for you.    
      3. Tailor Your Resume and Cover Letter: No two jobs are the same, so why send an identical resume and cover letter for every application? Taking the time to highlight specific skills and experiences appropriate for the job you’re applying to can pay serious career dividends.    
      4. Fill in the Gaps: Even if you’re out of work right now, consider volunteering or applying for internship positions. Not only does will it keep your skills and resume up to date, it also expands your network—and you never know where that might lead.    
      5. Do Your Research: There’s nothing worse than being asked a simple question about a company in an interview and not knowing the answer. Or landing a job only to find out that the company’s culture just isn’t right for you. Do your research in advance and you’ll never have those worries again.   

Finding Jobs in Uganda in 2011: 7 Resolutions

The New Year is upon us. While 2010 may have been marked by the announcement that the recession had ended, to many Ugandans the economy has not improved enough—some 8 million of them are still looking for work. While the coming year should bring further improvement, many job seekers are still struggling with the uncertainty of not knowing what it will take to land a job in 2011. Here are some resolutions to make now:

1. Build a Network of at least 100 people, and continue to add new contacts every week. Ask your friends and colleagues to introduce you to new people and then develop a relationship with those individuals. A diverse mix of people can provide diverse ideas as it pertains to your resume, job search and even potential leads.

2. Scrap Your Old Resume. Take the time to look back over your career with a fresh perspective (or have someone else do it). Examine every detail and responsibility of each of your previous jobs. In doing so, you may come to realize that your resume doesn't do your skill set or experience justice for the positions you're applying for. Taking the time to make your resume more relevant could be the one thing that makes the difference.

3. Broaden your Horizons. Don't pigeon-hole yourself into one possible career or one specific industry. For instance, those who have success in a for-profit industry shouldn’t look past a career in the non-profit sector, as salaries are quite comparable. Consider how your skills might transition to another career, and what benefit they could bring to an employer in a different sector.

4. Stop Blindly Searching for Jobs. Sending out 100 resumes a day will only hurt your chances. Apply for fewer jobs and put your effort into tailoring your application documents to meet the requirements for the position. That will give you a better chance of finding work, and reduce the risk of embarrassing mistakes.

5. Prepare For Your Interview. It’s not all face-to-face. Interviews are being conducted over the phone and even over Skype. Use a mirror; use a friend; hire a career coach – either way, you need to make sure you are prepared for any possible interview scenario that may arise. And make sure you come prepared to ask real questions too, such as, “Do you have a leadership development program? What does that look like?”

6. Research is Key. If you go into an interview with Goldman Sachs not knowing anything about Goldman Sachs, and stumble with your answer when asked, “So what do you know about Goldman Sachs,” you are more than likely not going to be invited back for a second interview. If you don't care enough to research a company before even applying for the job, it says to the interviewer that you are clearly not motivated enough to work there.

7. Promise to Have Fun. While the idea of not having work is scary, it doesn't help to consume yourself with fear. Having some fun will help you stay positive and keep you focused on the daily tasks of the job search. Take a break and go outside to enjoy nature, watch a little television, read a book, write a blog. Most importantly, keep yourself active so that the job search doesn’t get you down. A more positive attitude will yield better results in the end.
