When can I start?
- Employers interview and may feel good about an applicant, but isn't always sure if the applicant wants the job. If you don't state it when asked "Do you have any questions for me?" and you say "No" and walk away. He'll continue interviewing. Listen out for "Well, I'm still interviewing....". That means employer is not "feeling" you. If you don't hear those words, and you want the job, ask for it. You might just get it. It's how I got mine!

Get it in Writing
- "Do you have a full, detailed job description in writing?" Working in personal/direct care for the past few years, I've learned the importance of getting the employers expectations in writing. Otherwise, what is expected of you can balloon on the whim of your employer. Employers unwilling to convey a job description in writing may wrongly believe that any time you spend 'on the clock' belongs to them and that they have every right to ask you to do whatever they want. If you are a professional, act like one and require a written contract!

Great question to ask in an interview
- One of the most important questions to ask is "What is the biggest challenge someone will face in this job in the first 6 months?" This is an old sales technique to uncover the employer's pain so you can appropriately respond by telling them how you have faced these challenges in the past and overcome them. For example, a marketing executive asked this question in a critical interview with a startup firm. The Executive Vice President conducting the interview replied by pointing to a stack of letters and saying, "See that pile over there? Each letter is from a potential marketing partner who wants to use our technology solutions. We are a small company so we need to make sure we pick the right opportunity first". Hearing this, the candidate who was about to brag about his ad agency management skills, now knew exactly what he should focus on in his responses, and went on to stress his analytical and strategic partner management skills. He got the job.
