Ford will build another transmission in Livonia.
I’ve always considered myself a strong interviewer, but I’ll admit it: I was rocked by my first all-day interview (a.k.a., five and a half hours of back-to-back meetings with multiple people in the company). Would it sound insincere to repeat my answers over and over to each person? Could I ask how two members from one department worked with the three I just interviewed with from another? Was there really no coffee involved?
That day was definitely a learning experience. (Translation: I didn’t get the job, but I did gain some important insight for anyone else going through an all-day interview.) Learn from my trial by fire, and use these tips to power through your interview. Read more…

If there’s one thing that all job seekers have in common, it’s that they hate writing cover letters. With a passion.
But why? It’s not like they’re very long. And when you really think about it, they’re not that difficult. But something about that step between the resume and interview gets people really, really irritated
Is there a way to make this process suck less? Yes! So, take a deep breath, relax and try one of these ideas for making the process a little bit better.
Problem: You Think It’s Boring
To you, the worst part about writing cover letters is how formulaic they feel. You’re tired of writing the same letter over and over, slightly tailored for each position, and you’re tired of sounding like a robot. Especially if you’re working off of a template, things can get dull fast. Read more…

Every morning when I arrived at my office, I used to find a to-do list printed out and neatly laid on my keyboard, courtesy of my boss. But this wasn’t a typical bulleted list — it was a long (upwards of three pages), drawn-out document, where each bullet point was accompanied by paragraphs of elaboration, laying out to the very smallest of details exactly how I should accomplish the task.
And as I stared at this book (er, document), wondering if it would somehow look less menacing after my morning coffee, I couldn’t help but think, Wouldn’t it have taken her less time to just complete the things on the list? And the micromanaging didn’t stop there — she constantly asked for updates on my progress, added to and modified the list, and ultimately refused to let me do my job on my terms. Read more…
