7 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK AT THE END OF EVERY JOB INTERVIEW.

Click here to find out why these questions help you.

This is so important!

I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.

Don’t be me.

This is huge. When I do interviews at the job I hate, if people just shrugged when we ask “do you have questions” i pretty much write them off unless they were a bamf with at least two other areas of the interview.

Remember: if you are sitting in front of someone for an interview, they desperately want you to be the person for the job. They want you to be so amazing, that they don’t have to do this eleven more times.

True story: I was working through a temp-slash-employment agency and I went in to interview for a really good permanent job.

At the end of the interview I asked that last question: “Is there anything in my resume that raises any concerns about my candidacy?” 

The hiring manager said “Well, I didn’t want to say, but there are some spelling errors in your resume.”

I said “I’m not sure what you mean — may I see the resume you have?” 

He showed me the resume, which someone in the temp agency had chopped up and rewritten to make it “better” (without my knowledge or permission). That person had introduced some spelling errors.

I said “That’s not my resume. This is my resume.” I pulled out my crisp, perfect resume printed on high-quality cream bond paper.

He said “Wow, that’s much better.”

I got the job.

‘Rosie the Riveter’ camps are real and we wish we could go to one 

Summer camp has never looked so good, or so empowering.
Rosie’s Girls is taking a newer, feminist spin on the idea of what it means to have a summer experience with your peers. The program, which operates in several states nationwide, takes middle school-aged girls on a journey that includes both manual work and emotional work, with the goal of imparting the self-confidence sympbolized by the camp’s namesake: feminist icon Rosie the Riveter and her real-life counterparts.

Ms. Dieker, who also posts her monthly freelance income on her Tumblr, says that she’s hoping to make $40,000 gross this year, but that other freelancers routinely ask her how she manages to make that much when they’re bringing in much less. She also notes that she’s making a lot more than when she started out: “Like any other career, you grow it.”
