Steve Langerud Offers Advice for Job Interviews in Nationally Syndicated Column
July 21, 2011
July 21, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — It's important for job candidates to do some research on their potential employers before an interview and not be shy about asking questions. "If the interviewer doesn't share information, 'you may wish to look at another position,' observes Steve Langerud, director of Professional Opportunities at DePauw University in Greencastle, Ind.," notes Mildred L. Culp in her nationally syndicated "WorkWise" column. Langerud adds, "The wise employer lays it out to candidates."
According to DePauw's "career coach," "The willingness of an employer to be clear about gaps indicates the level to which (the company wishes) to succeed. Bringing new talent to the table is all about solving existing problems, filling gaps in performance and service, and moving forward in strategic ways."
