  1. Yep! That’s exactly what I mean. Refresh your memory so what you say in the interview is consistent with what you told them in the email. You won’t believe it but people sometimes forget to do that and tell a different story. If you’re the interviewer, you can imagine the notes you take about that! And, of course the person is rejected.

  7. Hi Jeff. Question.- How do you explain a change of Carrier in your resume. I worked as an engineer until 2003, later when to work in the financial sector. These days I want to go back to the engineering field (After 15 years) . What will you recommend me to say on an interview..? Thank you.

  8. Question?
    What’s your advice if you had a gap in employment due to medical issues for 2yrs.
    I feel as though if I revel this information that they will view me as sickly (judge) me and not want to hire me because they may think I’m unstable.

    What would you do?

  10. This is Bonnie for Jeff. He answers questions through PrestoExperts however, he is away for a few days. Knowing him, he would tell you to confidently say that you had a lengthy medical illness and have fully recovered and say it with power and confidence.

  12. This time, it’s Jeff. I’m taking a few days away with my family so I’m going to be brief. Bonnie’s advice speaking for me is right. Interviewing involves acting by inspiring confidence and speaking with certainty. Do what she says with confidence. If they pry into what the illness was, simply say, “Excuse me if I politely don’t answer. I’m fine and ready to roll again. Let me demonstrate what I can do for you and tell you about what I’ve done before , just like anyone else.” Speak with a smile on your face that says I believe in myself. Got it? Great!
