Avoid Hiring Cubiloids: What is a Cubiloid ...

Alfred Mariani, December 4 2018

They're all around you. They love the routine. They arrive at work the same time every day. They take the same train, same car and same seat every day. They go to lunch the same time each day, order the same meal, and leave at the same time. They take their breaks at the same time and eat the same pastry each day. They hate any kind of change and...

Don't Over Talk in a Job Interview...

The best approach is to give 30-60 second responses or slightly less. Try to recall political debates where each answer is 30 to 60 seconds. The candidates are trained to provide good information in short sound bites and not to elaborate. Elaborating can get you into trouble. Just practice what you wish to convey in a succinct manner.

Alfred Mariani, October 23 2018

Many people operate under the myth that companies are afraid of super talent. Quite the contrary is true, especially when competing in a global market. What concerns employers is whether or not a highly talented professional will be bored in a position that does not take full advantage of their skills. Job applicants should state that this is an...

How can you evaluate a good vs. bad college internship?

Alfred Mariani, October 16 2018

I have seen far too many college graduate resumes describing internships that sound like they were glorified clerks. The purpose of an internship is to walk away with real skills that increase your odds of being hired. Before accepting an internship, ask the hiring manager the following questions: What will be my specific job duties? How will th...
