    How to Talk about Other Interviews in Your Interviews

    By Feb 21,2024

    One of the questions I receive quite often from people I work with is whether or not they should talk about other interviews while they are interviewing with a potential employer. Let me emphasize one thing: This is one of the more important questions you will ever be asked in an interview. Regardless of your qualifications, how you respond to this question will have a direct bearing on whether or not you receive an offer from the employer. Be very careful how you answer it. At the outset, it’s important to point out you don’t have...

    Look at Your Job (or the Job You Are Seeking) from Your Employer’s Point of View

    By Jan 30,2024

    One of the highest performing dental offices in Australia is that of Patty Lund, who takes his job very seriously. Some years ago, Dr. Lund studied the dental market and identified what people considered to be the three worst things about going to the dentist. These were pain, smell, and waiting time. After identifying these three things, Dr. Lund and his dental hygienists did everything in their power to ensure people were extremely comfortable when getting dental work done. His practice included making muffins and cookies for patients, which...

    One of the stranger moments in my career came when I joined the now defunct law firm, Dewey Ballantine. I was in Los Angeles, and the firm flew us out to New York for orientation with all the new associates in the firm. A good portion of the new associates I met said something to the effect of: “I’m going to work here a few years. Then, I’ll figure out if I want to stay practicing law or do something different.” I could not believe that so many people were not committed to their jobs. Instead of being committed,

    Do Not Allow the Past to Limit Your Opportunities Today

    By Feb 14,2024

    My one-year old daughter calls a coffee cup “hot” and avoids coffee cups lest she get burned. Until she learns that the coffee cup can also contain coffee, milk, and other foods that will not harm her, she is likely to avoid coffee cups for some time. She must have been burned a little by touching a coffee cup at one point and learned to stay away from them.
