Unfortunately, there is not a way to determine how long the hiring/application process can take at any given company. Typically speaking, if the role is no longer available on the website, it is likely they have a candidate identified. Resume Received is generally the first step and yes, under revie...

Great Question! There are a few ways to highlight this in your resume, 2 come to mind off the bat. If you have an objective/profile section in your resume you can add a sentence regarding the transfer and when you anticipate that happening. You can also add after the Junior College content (i.e. int...

Congrats! Hope it is what you are looking for! 
Regarding HR contact, utilize your recruiter as your HR Point of Contact until your start date. They typically report into the HR Organization and have contacts if you have questions out of their area of expertise. Hope this helps!

Katelyn brings up great points and resources! I would also tap into your university career center. They do some analysis on what the going salary ranges are of their students when they get hired to different companies in different locations or at least can help drive that conversation. They may even...

Agree with Wendy on getting meaningful projects on your resume. Be sure to include your direct contributions if it is a team project! Also, I would do some reasearch. If there is a company or industry you are targeting, go check out employees of those companies online in the roles you wish to have 3...

Everything mentioned by Meredith I agree with! I would also add in any projects you work on that are related, personal or academic. Take a look at the resume generator on jobipedia as well!

Great question! If you haven't had any communications with them in a couple of weeks, absolutely reach out with a follow-up email. Nice touch on the thank you note, but this email should focus on the status of your candidacy. With the elapsed time, you don't seem too eager, and you want to make sure...

Hello, I would suggest getting your foot in the door in the field or industry your pursuing as a major. While making good money is important, taking the right steps early will pay off later. Perhaps look for a paid fall/spring co-op or internship, ask your favorite professor for suggestions on the t...

Not at all! Some interviewers have their own style and like to get more of a cultural feel in addition to understanding your capabilities. Personally, I love the conversational style interviews. While it may not work for all positions (i.e. technical role have more testing/questions type interviews)...

/ Asked by Kate L.
Absolutely! I would modify it to address the needs of the position and how you will complement the team. Having the same intro/story as to why you want to work for the company is acceptable. Maybe tailor the top 3-5 roles you really want a bit more to emphasize your abilities. Best of luck!

Hello,
I understand the struggle and the frustrations. There may be alternative ways for getting experience. Look into joining a club or doing some volunteer work around your area of interest.

Hello,
This is be for a number of reasons. My assumption is that the MD went ahead and started the interview process without all the HR steps in place. Sometimes this happens to get a jump start in the hiring needs. Did you have a position to formally apply to? This would help understand if the posit...

/ Asked by Kate L.
Great questions! It depends on the ATS (Applicant Tracking System) and the company itself on how they handle their recruiting model. All recruiters can see which roles and how many positions a single candidate has applied to. As for the rest of HR, some don’t need to have access based on their...

Absolutely follow up! Some reference checks asked for early in the process but conducted later. Also, they may be reaching out to your references through email. You may want to ask in your follow up email what the process is and timeline to set expectations for your references. I would also rea...

I love that you are thinking ahead and not trying to have a mountain of debt! Yes, some companies offer tuition reimbursement and some offer tuition debt repayment plans. The latter is to help pay down debt you have accrued.
You should ask your benefits or HR team regarding the types of programs they...

Look for both! Find out how to make money while happy doing it!
If you are only chasing the money and don't value the position or have a passion for what you do, it will be a long unfulfilling or trying career. I would suggest taking the time to evaluate what does make you happy and WHY. The WHY is a...

Hello, It depends on your company and their financial cycle. As Tom mentioned, most companies do have it annually, and some may have it more frequently throughout the year.

If the internship is aligned to the field of work you are pursuing or thinking about pursuing it’s a good idea. At the very least, it will help you decide if you don’t want to be in that field or the industry. I would suggest understanding the internship role and responsibilities and see...

Salary – Do you research and come prepared! While I understand most people are hesitant to give a number, it’s to make sure everyone is in the same ball park. If you are flexible in the range you are looking for, mention t

I agree with Eddie on all points! Understand what area you are interested in first and also check out different marketing job titles and duties. This will help you understand the roles and responsibilities as well as the expectations of what you bring to the table.
Good luck!

Keep in mind the role you are applying for. It is best to use a writing sample that is related to the industry or job function requesting it.
