Job interviews are a critical step in the achievement of a job offer. Your resume might be outstanding and your experience second to none...but if there isn't chemistry in the job interview, you may miss out on the job. Here are a few more tips and hints on what you should expect when arriving at a job interview and how to make sure that you give it everything you've got! Be prepared for these questions 'Never go into a job interview,' says Mitchell Posner in 'Executive Essentials', 'without knowing clearly your answers to these questions'… An icebreaker question: e.g. So, what do you think of this weather we're having?

Feedback provides managers with the information they need for sound decision-making. Indeed, it's important for bosses to stay in touch with their employees - that's where many winning ideas come from. As well, feedback acts as a kind of early warning system about potential problems and grievances. Unfortunately, many managers don't realise that achieving this form of upward communication requires a good deal of intelligent activity on their part... 1. Know why you need feedback from your staff. Feedback from employees alerts you to what may be going wrong, to discrepancies between how your staff see their jobs and how you see them, to conflicts, to inadequate workflow, to deficiencies in supervision, to low morale, and to other emotional staff issues. And just as importantly, feedback lets you hear about what you’re doing right, so that you can then continue in or refine these areas. 2. Tell people you want [...]

A manager who has succeeded in making a successful start at a new job needs to consolidate the benefits gained in those first few weeks. To maintain that momentum, here are some further suggestions... 1. Seek out a mentor. Ask for or identify a superior or colleague who can 'show you the ropes' and assist you through the first few months. Stay in contact with this mentor and take the opportunity to learn. Your mentor will acknowledge your enthusiasm, recognise your ability, and be eager to continue this working relationship. 2. Listen to what others have to say. It's been said that listening is 50 per cent of our education - so listen more and talk less. Use speech to post winners, not to attract attention.
