3 Words You Should Use To Gain Insight During An Interview

By Karthik Selvaraj, published on Dec 10, 2013

I love articles on career advice and interviews. A few years ago, it was both a shock and a revelation to me when I learned that an interview is not just the recruiter firing away questions at a candidate, instead it is a constructive dialog between the two parties. An interview is a short process. As much as a company wants to size their candidate up quickly, the candidate also needs to learn about the company.

To help gain insights about each other, three simple words you can use during the interview are: "Tell Me More."

Or some variant of it. Here are my thoughts.

How to get off drugs, the drama's and the pain.

By Alex Petrovic, published on Jul 8, 2012

...in with me. Not a good move. Now I was in a relationship, which is something I knew not much about. Being locked to the one girl wasn’t in my plans. We were living together for about three months before I met her parents. I’ve never been big on meeting parents. I liken it to a job interview, and I avoid those like the plague.

It was a Saturday and the sun was making a stand. Out of the blue Angela asked if I’d like to go for a boat ride. “You have a boat” I asked. “Yes”, she replied and pretty much left it at that. I it was good weather for it, and it was... (more)

Many Drug dealers were out last night, I hit the streets to see who was about. Where were they dealing from.
