I have a confession to make. Early in my career I was a bit of a job hopper. If I did not like how things were going or I felt it was time for a bigger raise, off I went. Of course that was a much different time and lucky for me, jobs were plentiful. I was also new enough to the field that each move did guarantee me a 10% or even greater salary increase.

This is a repost from a blog I wrote about a year ago. Hope it helps those of you in the hunt...
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been on job interviews. Geez…at least 100 times.
But what I have come to know from those experiences is that much of the process is basically a crap shoot. For instance, when you think you did well, turns out you didn’t. When you thought you did poorly, they call you up and make an offer! I am convinced there is absolutely no rhyme or…Continue
