Refrain from Using the Word "Growth" During an Interview #5895

Many times we are asked "what type of position are you looking for?" or "what are you looking for in a new job?" Avoid using the word "growth" which is a very common answer. Especially in the first stages of the process, you are being pre-screened by the person who's job you could be "growing" into, as we interview "up" a level each time we meet a set of criteria. That person could be asking themselves, "if they do grow and there's only my job between their position and the department head, where does that leave me?". Instead, answer "you would like a position where you can take on additional responsibility." It's simply a matter of semantics. This is much less threatening and won't raise the same red flag.

Working with recruiters (headhunters) #889

Remember, recruiters do not manufacture jobs, they recruite for positions they have been asked to fill. So it is likely you will not hear back from a recruiter unless, and until, s/he has a position to fill where you are a qualified candidate. Recruiters also tend to specialize in particular career fields (Information Technology, BAnking, Sales, Medical, etc.) so you will not hear back from a recruiter who does not recruite for your career field.

Quality is not Quantity #3875

When Public Speaking, stick to the agreed time. If you're
asked to speak for twenty minutes, speak for nineteen and
the audience will love you for it. Remember, quality is not
quantity.

Reality #3351

You can't play politics at work unless you have the power, and do not fool your boss though he may not be as smart as you are but he can fire you anyway!!
