  1. Hey Folks, join me for the video on amping up your interview game! These questions are must-asks in the SCREEN and are tailored so you can get the information up front and use it to your advantage through the entire interview process. And, make sure to SUB so you don't miss my weekly video releases plus Live Office Hours on Thursdays!

  2. After watching the entire video, you might want to revisit certain sections. I know I like to rewatch specific content to study Andy's wisdom on the topic!
    Here are links to the specific sections if you want to revisit them:

    0:23 Why open?

    1:05 Internal candidates?

    1:50 How long?

    5:10 Candidate issues?

    6:07 Keys to hire?

    7:56 Sources?

  3. One reason for the position to be open is whistle blowers and employees who are denied the right to work in a fraud free environment, so the boss got his team of puppies who play with him but that one does not follow the game … he is canned!

  4. When I'm applying as a software developer I never ask why the position is open, because tech companies are basically eternally hiring developers, it's just a thing.

    For other positions yes, though.

  5. Excellent stuff sir..Can you make a video on resume making..different types considering human capabilities. Excellent, good,average human capabilities resume make

  6. High Andrew, hw your doing , I got a call for a job , first they told me you're selected on the first you hv to join , and second day morning again a call , BAAM , your r not married u hv no knowledge about the job , this is India , I hv a bachelor's degree with 9Yrs experience in Procurement & Purchase , here in India they r concernd about the marriage then the job it's insane. unorganised educated has no value here , wrong people r @ the wrong positions !!

  7. Andrew, I want to thank you to make those insightful videos that help many people, including me. Your questions are so on point. I haven't even thought about before. Why open and how long? So simple and effective!

  8. Great point to ask how long the position has been open. This may seem like it doesn't matter but you're right! And, the interview is a great time to take advantage of the opportunity to get more information about the company to ensure you really want to work there. Cheers!

  9. Really nice video. Extremely useful info. Thanks for sharing this with us, Andrew. Do you have a video about how to proceed when you know there are internal candidates? I'm really curious about the "funky" things you briefly mentioned. I'm quite sure this situation happened to me recently.
    Thanks.

  10. Andrew, I enjoy your videos and I think you are doing a great job and I really think that you should have more views. Your content is so great and unique.
    I have received mail from a group leader of the department at the company I have applied for a job. He asked me if I am available Monday for a phone call. He wants to ask me about my background and tell me about the position. I was happy and agreed. The day later one of my co-workers sent me message telling me he got a call from some other person in that company who happens to be a senior engineer with extensive background and asked him about me. And my coworker said only positive things about me and recommended me for that job. I am pretty active on linkedin and couple days before this happened I added a person who works for the same company. And after the e-mail I received I wrote him and he actually told me that he will be on the call as well. I am puzzled and don't know whether to think about this just as a phone screening or an actual job interview. These guys are not recruiters. They are engineers and the people who I will work with if I am hired. Do these tips apply if the interviewers are not the recruiting managers? And how common it is to contact coworkers even though I did not list them as my reference? Thank you.

  11. Andrew, would you suggest to ask these questions on a cold call? Do you like the idea of a cold call? I've seen some job posts with the telephone number of the hiring manager. What's your thoughts on this?
