    More interview questions. This article is intended to give interviewers questions that help quickly get an idea of the personality of the interviewee so they can get a sense of whether they will fit in better with the rest of the staff. Can't hurt to expect them though.

        Article about the software often used to filter the hundreds of resumes a job posting will elicit, and how it might be automatically eliminating candidates who actually ARE qualified for the job before a human can even set eyes on it.

            FYI, never be afraid to snoop around online and find out anything you can about a company you're applying at. A particularly good resource is LinkedIn. Just last night, I applied to a job posting, and after finding the company on LinkedIn and browsing through their employees, it turns out that one of their creative directors is a friend of a friend of a friend. No idea if he's got anything to do with hiring or within the same department, but it doesn't really matter. Never hurts to ask a friend to put in a good word, and as it turns out, a mutual friend happened to be emailing him about something else and let him know to ask her for a character reference if needed.

            Name dropping. Golden.

              Another great snooping tool:

              glassdoor.com

              They survey employees and former employees, and you can get reviews on what it's like to work there, and even the salary ranges of various positions.

                    Not sure if this has been posted on the forum, but a friend sent this to me:

                    http://designbeep.com/2012/03/07/sho...-designs-2012/

                    I haven't dug thru them all, but there are some good and bad ones out there. Resumes are the one thing where it's a little bit more complex for designers compared to the standard Microsoft Word resumes of the regular business world.

                        First post, so I'll make it a kind of confession: I collect stuff. My collection includes web links to sites for inspiration, collaboration, stock photos (free and paid), illlustrations (also free and paid), and a lot more....including websites for job searches.

                        I find Indeed to be a bit too cluttered, with too many click-throughs required before you're actually able to get to the job itself. In its place, here are a few websites for a broad array of creatives:

                        Creative Niche: http://www.creativeniche.com
                        Dice: http://www.dice.com/
                        Dribbble Jobs: https://dribbble.com/jobs
                        Behance Jobs: https://www.behance.net/joblist
                        The Creative Group/Robert Half: http://www.roberthalf.com/creativegroup/job-search

                                  It's just what I call it when people use an expression that actually says or means the opposite of what is intended; ''could care less'' would be another prime example.

                                  That makes sense, I guess. Off is the inverse of on, which makes based off the inverse of based on. Got it. ...

                                  Okay, I know what a colloquialism is, but what is an inverse colloquialism?

                                  Probrien, in addition to HotButton's comments, which I agree with, the ad is a bit confusing. Maybe it's lacking...

                                  ''Based off'' is inverse of ''based on.'' ''Based on'' is a colloquialism.
                                  I think.
                                  I have not had enough to drink to play this game.
