what was the gist of the email? Was it business-related or related to the job you are applying for?

Probably a slip up if the email was meant for someone else ... maybe the beginning of your name or email is similar to another person, but your email got added in error instead

It was related to what my job would entail. It was sent to that specific management team that I would be apart of. Just thought that was a weird slip up.

Hoping it is a good sign Need something to be positive about.

in that case, it is probably a good sign.. the person who sent the email must have been thinking about you... Good luck!

This is the last day of my contract and won't be back till the beginning of next year, when hopefully (I was told) I might be brought back on. Oh well, I will admit, I missed my free time .

I have an interview with US Airways this coming Tuesday, working in Credit Card Fraud. I know US Airways is trying to merge with American Airlines, so one of my questions will be about what that will mean for jobs in Tempe if they do merge. Anyone else know of anything going on, outside of the stewardess negotiations, that could be used as questions to the interviewers?

My friend works for US Airways, and says the questions are geared towards "give me a time when you", like most interviews are now a days.

Question though, would it be ok to come in with situations ahead of time, and written down on a piece of paper, and I glance down to refresh myself of a situation, or does that look bad in an interview?

I graduated this summer with a PR degree and am utterly jobless, and prospectless, today. I have easily applied to over 500 jobs since graduating. I held a sales position (business, door to door, FiOS sales through a third party Verizon vendor) but it was 100% commission, no benefits, minimum 60 hours a week. I left when it began to look as if the managers were also huge scam artists. So far, clones of this position, just selling other crap with no guaranteed wage inside of a pyramid-scheme office, have been the only positions I've been called back for. I actually have a really strong résumé, excellent professional references and interview quite well. I'm beyond frustrated with the job search though.

I wouldn't recommend looking at a paper, or scripting your responses. I'd come up with a few scenarios in your head and keep them in the back of your mind. I've noticed that interviewers don't mind nervous candidates, just try to still be friendly and talkative and excited for the position

My background is in Accounting and Finance and I'm trying to think laterally from traditional financial services. I don't think the average person realizes how much they are paying for an advisor to give them objective information. In theory it could also bring some financial literacy to the middle and lower-middle class.

A local man landed a job on Wall Street, all thanks to his creative cover letter that has since gone viral. Some are even calling it the best cove letter ever.

A cover letter, captured by the nation, is considered to be one of the best by a firm on Wall Street. It all came from a former Placer High School student, and it looks like the key to his viral letter was his honesty.

“He broke through the clutter,” said Duff & Phelps spokesperson Alex Wolfe. “We get a lot of interest in a limited number of positions.”

The cover letter written by San Diego State finance student Matthew Ross to investment banking firm Duff & Phelps, and it had just the right mix of confidence and candidness.

Ross wrote, “I won’t waste your time inflating my credentials, throwing around exaggerated job titles or feeding you a line of crap about how my past experiences and skill set align perfectly for an investment banking internship.”

Got an email from the company I had the long ass interview for way back in November before Thanksgiving. I was very hopeful for the position when they emailed me info for the position on accident. The email stated that they are very sorry that the process has taken so long and I am one of the top candidates. They hope to have a decision hopefully tomorrow or next week.

I Need some good news!

I'm stoked, I have to fly up to Seattle for a in-person interview at the end of the month (already did a phone interview that I thought I did so so on, but anyhow).

Only awkward thing, because of the nature of my work/possible future employer, I have to take a polygraph too, which I've never done before.
