There are a number of ways to succeed and fail in an interview, things like showing up on time and being dressed appropriately are obvious, but many young people new to the workforce may stumble into unfamiliar interview pitfalls. Dan Bobst recently spoke to Glassdoor with some dos and don’ts for the interview process.
“Tell your interviewer what you are most comfortable doing or what your background is in, or even things you haven’t done before but are interested in doing. No one wants to hire the short-term person who is just going to leave. Make sure you leave your interviewer with the impression that you are in it for the long haul”
When it comes to compensation, it can be uncomfortable with how to proceed. But bring it up too early in the interview may seem improper and presumptuous. If you don’t know exactly what the position is paying, play it safe at first.
“Give the impression that you are flexible on compensation rather than make demands.If you don’t know what pay you are qualified for, you should consider the amount of experience [you] have and what industry [you] are interested in working in and do a little research.”
With February coming to an end its likely that you have not yet implemented your New Year’s resolutions yet. If this is true for you, stop thinking negatively about your procrastination and accept that you have not done anything productive, move forward and start fresh. The following are a collection of powerful tips for successfully implementing your resolutions this year, as well as becoming a Successful Professional from Dan W. Bobst.
- Write down your goals. Physically write them down, on paper, in an old school notebook. Then share your goals with others. Writing your goals down suddenly makes them real. When you tell others about your goal, you are even more likely to be committed as others will be tracking your progress with you.
- Stop pursuing short-term wants that distract you from your goals. Stop the week night partying, and events that distract you from being a success. While you think you get away with it, others will notice you sneaking in later or nodding off in the afternoon.
- Take a digital time-out and read nonfiction books. Try to learn as much as you can about your profession and industry. You won’t gain any benefit from spending an evening arguing online, or looking at the highlight reals of everyone’s life on Facebook or Instagram.
- Have a set family dinner with your spouse and children. Use this time to have significant conversations about their lives, concerns and interest. Before you know it, children will out of the house and you’ll learn to late that you don’t know them. Committing this time each day will create a solid home-life that will give you support and motivation throughout your life.
- Give up working for the sake of working. Start focusing on being productive. Staying busy is not a measure of success. Take the time to step back and analyze your activities, and if they are not productive, move onto something else that will help improve your career.
- Focus on your health. If you are not physically healthy, everything in life becomes more difficult. Take the time to visit your doctor for annual check-ups and other needs. Find an exercise outlet to keep you active — hiking, yoga, swimming, biking or participate in competitive sports.
- Surround yourself with people that are from different backgrounds and will challenge you. Engage in hobbies where you can interact with people of all religions, economic levels, races and ages. Take the time to step outside of daily routine and widen your network.
- Take time to focus on your appearance and speech. People judge you based on how you present yourself and how you speak, both personally and professionally.
- Take time to de-stress. Spend time with friends and family, sign up for continuing education classes, start a new hobby or adopt a pet. These are all great ways to alleviate stress from the rough days at work.
- Having a basic grasps of recent sporting events, pop culture references, learning a few jokes or having a few personal anecdotes are great ways to break the ice and start a conversation. These can be used during interviews, meetings or as an opening to speak with strangers at networking events.
- Don’t let your job define you as a person. Eventually you may have to step away from your career and be left with no identity. This can make bouncing back and finding something new even more challenging.
- Constantly talking about where you went to college, your fancy neighborhood, exotic vacations and expensive cars won’t impress anyone, and can even make them dislike you for being pretentious.
- Put as much time as possible working in your early career, so you can reap the benefits in you later career and life.
- Establish a value for your time, delegate everything you can, including chores around the house that are not worth your time.
- Strive to be the person you want to be, all the time.
- Remove negativity and defeatist sentiments from your vocabulary. “I guess the rich just get richer,” “We’ve always done it this way”, “That will never work” and similar statements should be removed from your conversations. Focus on a positive attitude!
Employers across the country are reporting that prospective and newly-hired employees are not showing up for scheduled interviews or not showing up for work after being hired, in what’s now being termed as ‘ghosting.’ Dan Bobst recently appeared on Fox News Radio to discuss the trend.
Is ‘ghosting’ a symptom of a hot job market, or is it more of a cultural shift?
“I’m afraid it’s more of a cultural shift unfortunately. I hear ghosting has been happening for a while in other parts of society and I hope it doesn’t bleed into the job world. That would be a terrible trend for both sides, if you’re an employee your don’t want to be ghosted by a hiring manager, and if you’re an employer you don’t want someone to no-show an interview or new job either.”
How do you see employers dealing with ‘ghosting’ in the future if so many people are going to not show up for interviews?
“I think it goes back to the decision of whether or not you’re going to be personal or impersonal
as a company. Are you going to have a reputation where you hire 50 people for 10 positions just
to make sure you’re covered? That’s going to create a negative reputation for your business
because you over-hired. I think it’s up to both sides to make everything more personal.
Employers should be communicating openly with their top talent, and that will encourage
prospective employees to also be responsive.”

Submitting an impressive resumé is key to landing a job, however many applicants often send old, outdated, or mistake-riddled resumés without out a second thought. Dan Bobst recently spoke with Jobhero.com on how to make a good impression on paper. Some basic strategies include using immaculate spelling and grammar, having clear solid organization, displaying relevant skills, and showing professional growth. One thing most managers said was to leave out the extra-personal stuff:
“I’ve seen resumes that list where someone last vacationed and
what movies they like. That kind of information isn’t really
necessary to determine if someone is a qualified match to set up
