All that hard work you did in preparing your executive resume and identifying companies to approach has paid off. You’ve got a phone interview scheduled with a company you’d like to work for and potentially the job of your dreams. Here are some tips to make sure you don’t blow it now.
You’re not imagining it: The time it takes to get a call back from a recruiter, or for the interview(s) you had to turn into a job offer or at least a polite decline is increasing. A report released last week by Glassdoor presented an analysis of over 340,000 “interview reviews” that visitors to the Glassdoor career site have submitted.
The answer to that question is unfortunately, “Yes,” Especially in an “employer’s job market” where there are hundreds if not thousands of applicants for every available spot, recruiters and employers can be extremely picky. That little typo on your executive resume, cover letter, or application can mean you don’t get that interview–impressive as your documentation may have been otherwise.
