One of my other jobs involves working with thousands of staffing companies. As a result, I have regular contact with hiring managers across the United States. When I saw this article in US News entitled, “21 Things Hiring Managers Wish You Knew”, I was impressed with how spot on it was. Hiring managers have seen it all when it comes to people’s ideas of what is appropriate behavior in the pursuit of that “perfect job”. If you’re about to embark on a job hunt, with your Allen School diploma in hand, have a quick read of this piece so you can get some idea of what hiring managers are looking for in today’s difficult employment environment. Remember, there are 6 job seekers for every available job today. So it pays to be as well prepared for the critical interview process as you can be. Never before has it been so important!
