Have you ever been in a position where you were asked to sketch out your dream role? Perhaps during an interview, or maybe in a casual informational chat, where it seemed like the company was just intrigued by your background and potential? Imagine this: You walk into an interview, or maybe even a discussion with your boss, and instead of being han…

Are you exhausted from trying to figure out the best way to say what you want to say in a job interview? As in, which method do I use? Why do I have to speak interview-speak instead of normal, human-speak? Why is the company telling me I have to use the STAR technique? What the hey is the STAR technique? Wait, now that I think of it, Coach Andy tel…

Today, you get a podcast on The Job Interview Formula Guaranteed to Get You Hired (CAAR). It’s titled that because, well, it’s an actual formula, which, if you use it, I pinky swear, you’ll get hired. It literally, IMHO, is one of, if not, THE, very best podcasts I’ve created on how to answer questions—like ANY question—in a job interview. I cover …

Is it détente or mutual destruction? I’m not sure, but AI will change the game for employers and employees, especially in the hiring process. Someone asked me a few weeks ago about my thoughts on the recent Wall Street Journal article titled You’re Fighting AI with AI: Bots Are Breaking the Hiring Process. Here’s what I had to say. I hope, as alway…

Here’s a line straight out of The Zebra Code… “Always remember, your success, in anything, will have more to do with where you place your attention than your ability.” There are no truer words when it comes to your job search. Most people think their history matters. (Not really.) Others think their skills matter. (Not if you keep talking about the…

Are you getting paid what you’re worth? That was actually a trick question because there’s absolutely no way for you to know exactly what you’re worth. You’re worth is dependent on what someone else is willing to pay for you at this exact moment in time. You are like a stock, a house, or anything else whose value is determined by someone else’s des…

I get this one a lot. "Coach, I’m getting stock [or RSUs, ISOs, PIUs, Phantom, etc. etc.] as part of my compensation package. How do I value this? How do I gauge what the right amount is?" FYI…that’s Restricted Stock Units, Incentive Stock Options, Profit Interest Units, Phantom Stock (yes, it’s a thing) and several other variations of stock-ish ty…

Today, I’m running through the “You’re overqualified,” scenario which, unfortunately, all-too-many job seekers hear. I mean, if they think this, why are they even talking to you? It’s a veiled concern about your fit or salary or whatever. We all know it. But, does that mean we need to throw in the towel? You know I’m all about the art of the possib…

Every week, I meet individually with 15-18 people to help them with their job searches, interviews, and salary negotiations. Inevitably, I get questions such as… “Coach, I had this interview. The recruiter talked the entire time. Didn’t ask me a single question. What should I have done?” “Andy, the interviewer started the interview with ‘What quest…

Many want it. The good life. The few. They want the great life. The rest. What’s left. You guessed it. They pursue heights so high most people dismiss them as unattainable.

It’s still January, which means technically I’m trending if I talk about goal setting. Are you achieving yours? Goals that is? I’m not really a goal-setter per se, as much as I strive to be an accomplish-er. And, I guess now that I’ve written that previous sentence and am too lazy to go back and change it, I’ll just correct it here... I have never …

“An object in motion is easier to redirect than a stationary one.” I’m sure I made up that quote sometime in my teens during one of my endless semesters of physics. I’m sure I’m not the first person to have that thought. I’m also sure it’s the end of the year. That means many job-seekers are either tired of searching or hesitating or reluctant to g…

Expected salary is ridiculous. Budgeted salary…sillier still. Just like advertised salary, unadvertised salary, and the-salary-we-hope-to-pay salary. How do I know this? Let’s see... Negotiated over 600 employment agreements and salaries as an executive recruiter. Wait. There’s more. Of the more-than 3,000 people I’ve personally coached as an inter…

Sometimes you (think you’ve) hit a wall. There’s a person you’re speaking to and they just don’t want to pay you any more salary.

Your resume is a marketing document, not a work history document. Yes, you use your work history to market yourself, but 99.9% of the people I’ve encountered do it the wrong way. In my work history, for example, I’ve helped companies earn likely billions of dollars. I’ve built project management methodologies. I’ve built enough tools for 10 lifetim…

I’m an open-minded person. BUT, if you want to convince me there is any faster route to getting a job interview, and ultimately an offer, other than boss hunting, you better come armed.

I once had a client who would say to me, “But, Andy, I’m really bad at predicting the future.” She was referring to her ability to hire the right engineers for her company. She’d say they sounded great in the interviews. Then, she’d notice, after they were hired, they didn’t really have the traits she thought they did. This works both ways. Job can…
