Get the Offer You Want! Best Ways to Answer Salary Questions in an Interview

Sure, you could just blurt out your 2017 earnings or exclaim: "It's none of your business!" But if you really want the job -- and to get paid what you're worth -- here's how to field interview questions about salary.


Career Mistakes Even Smart People Make

We all occasionally miscalculate and regret decisions, but some mistakes are largely preventable (especially when it comes to career management). With these practical tips, you'll easily sidestep career pitfalls and landmines -- and keep your career growth on track.

Put More Joy in Your Life -- Even When You're Stressed

Put More Joy in Your Life -- Even When You're Stressed

When work is hectic, bills pile up, your discipline fails or someone frustrates you, it's natural to feel stressed. But these simple habits will help you alleviate tension and experience more joy in your daily life.


Employers want to know that you're qualified for the job, but they also want to hire someone who fits with their corporate culture. Here are three tips for letting your personality shine in your next interview:

  1. Arrive prepared. You'll be more focused, in the moment and authentic.
  2. But not too rehearsed. Memorizing a script will make you sound like you're delivering a speech or stand-up routine.
  3. Share specific examples from your experiences. This gives your interviewer a sense of how your personality has helped you achieve success in the past. For example, describing a situation where you performed well under pressure demonstrates your confidence, poise and problem-solving abilities more than a hypothetical situation.
