Starting us off with an important tip: Your resume is a marketing document, not an autobiography. It should include relevant jobs, responsibilities, and perhaps most importantly, achievements.

The point is to make the hiring manager think, “Wow, I need to talk to this person! They seem like a good fit!”

There’s a conference that my firm is offering to pay for me to go to. However, I had a callback interview for a lateral position at another firm. Of course, it’s not set and stone and I don’t have an offer yet, but I’m wondering if it would look really bad if I went to this conference on the firm’s dime shortly before I put in my notice. Anyone have any helpful thoughts? Thanks.

So I’m currently at a fabric company where we do custom roller shades, our department runs marketing and all the custom prints for hotels we are the only 2 in the department. My boss is putting in his 2 weeks and I’m the next up! I’ve learned a lot working under him and he thinks this is a great opportunity for me to move up and take on his responsibilities. So my question for you all if the offer me his position with his responsibilities how much of an increase should I ask for?

Anyone work at Nixon Peabody or Akerman? I’d really appreciate a referral. Thank you!

I interviewed for an associate position at a mid size firm. I really liked them, but they offered the position to someone else, only giving me an answer on the status of my candidacy after that person accepted.

Is it wrong to assume that they hadn’t rejected me sooner in case others didn’t accept? If so, how can I let the firm know I’d like to be considered for future openings? I used a recruiter, should I have her tell them? Should I contact the interviewers directly?
