I’ve been a human resources professional since 2004 and a full-time recruiter since 2016. Over that time, I have seen thousands (no exaggeration) of resumes and conducted hundreds of interviews across numerous functions, job levels, and industries.
Through countless interviews, informal conversations with job seekers, and coaching conversations with supervisees and mentees, I’ve had the opportunity to observe from many angles what works well in the job-seeking and interviewing process—as well as what doesn’t work.
In this blog series, I’m offering some practical tips to “diagnose” the places where you may be stuck in your job search. Here are quick links to each of the posts:

- Part 2: How to get past the initial interview
- Part 3: How to be a finalist who receives the job offer
- Part 4: How to move on from an unsuccessful interview process
- Part 5: How thank-you notes affect the interview process
