Did you know that when you’re interviewing for a job, your e-mail address can actually influence a company’s opinion of you? Watch my video to learn more, and what you can do.
I’d love to hear from you – Has your e-mail choice hurt you in your job search? Or, are you a hiring manager that’s seen it all? What did you do about it, if anything? E-mail me at Angela(at)CopelandCoaching(dot)com.
Did you know that employers use more than just your resume when they’re deciding whether or not to hire you? It’s true! But, when you think of what else they might use, you’re probably thinking of things like your references, your LinkedIn profile, or maybe your Facebook account.
What you may not know is that they’re also using your credit score. Today, you can be denied employment due to a poor credit score. And, unfortunately, your credit history looks at more than just your credit cards. It looks at things like medical bills and student loans.
Check out my latest career tip video for advice on what you can do about it!

Has this ever happened to you? You’re at your desk at work and the phone rings. You pick up and on the other end is a recruiter – more specifically, a headhunter.
They tell you about a great job they’re trying to fill, and then ask you if you know anyone who would be a good fit for the role. You feel like a deer in headlights. You’re at work, and you aren’t even sure what they’re asking.
Check out my tips on what to say if this happens to you, and what a headhunter really means when they ask, “Do you know someone who would be a good fit for this great job?”
I’d love to hear from you – has a headhunter called you before to see if you “knew someone” who was interested in a job? What did you do? E-mail me at Angela(at)CopelandCoaching(dot)com.
Tell me if this scenario sounds familiar: You have a phone interview with a hiring manager. It goes so well, that you’re asked to do a second interview. Then an in-person interview. Then a panel interview. Then…crickets.
This happens to all of us at some point in our job search. The interview process seems to go great, then all of a sudden we hear nothing from the hiring manager who has usually been contacting you very regularly up until this point. I talked to a few hiring managers to find out what’s really going on and what they wish you knew about the process (spoiler alert: it’s often as frustrating for them as it is for you).
I’d love to hear from you – what’s the most frustrating part of the job process for you as a job seeker? E-mail me at Angela(at)CopelandCoaching(dot)com.
