Cookie Cutter Interview Questions with Cashman

07.20.09   |   Job Search & Career   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

We have all been in an interview and things are going reasonably well. You can’t get the best read on what the interviewer is thinking but you know that s/he does not completely hate you. Just when you’re feeling confident, they throw out that question that you have heard a thousand times before and you never know how to answer it the right way.

How to articulate your story on your resume

07.09.09   |   Job Search & Career   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

Wouldn’t you agree that there is more about you than what people read on your resume? As a recruiter I hear from candidates, “If I can only get them in front of a prospective employer then I know I can get the job”. Unfortunately, if your resume is not an inclusive representation of who you are aside from being a fit for the role you are applying for, but as an individual, you may not even get the chance to get up to bat. However, when you do get that chance you must be ready to tell ‘your story’. When I refer to ‘your story’ , I’m looking for a well articulated and logical explanation of not only what college you graduated from and what companies you worked for but the important details that make you a unique candidate.

What's your message?

07.08.09   |   Job Search & Career   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

I was recently picked to film a video for a project that Treeline is working on. The video was originally done by one of my colleagues but then we needed to re-record it due to technical reasons and he wasn’t available. Long story short, I had to record myself doing this pitch that was written by him. I spent a few hours in a room all by myself, staring into a camera, saying a pitch over and over again and when I finally felt I was done, I showed it to my CEO. I thought that he’d view the video and ‘ok’ it and I could get back to the phone. Wishful thinking.

The Field Ride: How to prepare

07.07.09   |   Job Search & Career   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

Today’s landscape for job seekers has been anything but a walk in the park. Typically, hiring companies have created standard interview processes which can range from 2 to 7 steps, including phone screens, several meetings with company executives and sometimes a “day in the life” or a field ride. A “day in the life” is fairly standard within an outside sales role, but this trend has recently been adopted for inside sales roles. These “shadow” days can range from a few hours to an entire day depending on the hiring company and are tools to asses your ability to listen, ask questions and catch on to their day to day routine.

How To: Get pumped up for an interview!

07.06.09   |   Job Search & Career   |   Amanda Musto, Marketing Manager at Treeline Incorporated

One of the most common concerns/complaints that we hear from hiring managers after an interview is that the candidate did not seem to have enough energy. This can be interpreted several different ways but typically it means that the candidate either did not seem excited to be there, did not seem excited about the job, or their body language communicated their lack of engagement. However, upon asking the candidate how they felt the interview went, they often respond by saying that it went very well, they had solid answers and asked good questions during the interview. That’s why they are shocked when I tell them that their candidacy is being passed on due to “lack of energy.”
