There are certain résumé words and phrases that have become so ubiquitous they do little more than induce yawns and eye rolls from hiring managers. Employers are so accustomed to hearing from "team players" and "problem solvers," for example, that those descriptions are now essentially meaningless.

What’s the difference between a networking event that inspires and connects versus one that fails?

The following scene gets enacted in numerous workplaces every day.
Joe enters the cafeteria, and Sally, a senior executive, is standing right in front of him. Sally makes eye contact, smiles and asks Joe how he is doing. At this point, Joe might respond in one of three ways:
How often have you wondered why employers don’t respond to job applications? You read through the job posting. Twice. Your skills and work experience are a perfect match for the responsibilities of the position you’re applying for. You take the time to carefully craft job applications that rivals any Academy Award–winning speeches. You follow the submission process down to the last detail. You hit send and you wait.
Most often, volunteer work appears toward the end of a resume, after work history.

It's a job-interview standard.
The interviewer nearly always asks you "Where do you see yourself in five years?"
We've been hearing this lame question since I was a rugrat watching The Beverly Hillbillies, or longer.
Why do I think "Where do you see yourself in five years?" is a lame interview question? Here are my reasons:
Who knows where they're going to be in five years?
The interview process is like a dance. There is a certain choreography that helps both sides understand if it is worth moving to the next stage.

I’ve conducted many dozens of job interviews in the past several years. I’ve hired some great folks as a result of these interviews, but my experience rejecting candidates is also pretty extensive. I’ve gained some decent insight into why candidates fail, and it often comes down to some interviewing skills for which all good interviewers expect, regardless if they know it or not.
In today’s society, your resume is the most important document you have to get yourself an interview.

You finally landed that coveted job interview. Maybe you aced it; perhaps you flopped. Either way, you send a thank you note and check your inbox compulsively for a week, waiting not-so-patiently for some sort of response. But you hear nothing.
