    #14 Tanja, good luck with the book project. Your experiences may provide others with just the advice they are looking for. I've only been interviewed in 3 countries. I've lost count of how many people I have interviewed (probably > 5000) and how many countries they were from, most continents anyway.
    More than getting the interview, preparing for it is critical. As Eminem says in Lose Yourself:
    Look
    If you had
    One shot
    Or one opportunity
    To seize everything you ever wanted
    In one moment
    Would you capture
    Or just let it slip?

    #13 I think you didn't understand what I was trying to say. I am just finishing my book about this topic, I will let you know once it's published and I invite you to read it. In the book I describe how to get a job you want, much more than just a simple CV preparation. An excellent CV will not guarantee a job if you are a disaster at the interview. It is always nice to hear the opinion of HR/ recruiting expert with experience and also read scientific researches and investigations. On the other hand it is also good to hear an advice from a person who is "one the other side", a job seeker who actually has to search for a job and go for an interview. I have changed 26 jobs in 12 years and I had over 100 interviews in 6 countries. I think I have "something" to share. I am not a recruiter and I respect you especially because I know how important decisions you have to take, like the example you wrote.

    Tanja, perhaps when you have a little more experience in recruitment you will have a broader view. My own experience as a recruiter, recruiting manager, resource manager, and candidate, spans periods where the employment market has been smoking hot and arctic cold. I once missed out on business when I failed to put a candidate I knew forward for a role, only to see another agency put the very same person forward and have them get the role. I've even seen excellent CV's from logistics people with large warehouse operations experience presented to me for IT technical roles in Data Warehousing. A good candidate will get an interview even when they are the only candidate. The CV matters less in a tight labour market. The CV is not the only factor, but it enhances your chances if it is well presented and relevant to the role. Recruiters have a natural bias towards closing the sale with the recruiting manager in an organization. They need to be very aware that that sometimes clouds their judgement.

    #11 I wish I would be the only candidate as you said ;) I think it is pretty rare and even if you are the only candidate and you do not match to the position, they will not call you but they will post the job somewear else.

    #10 Perhaps. It may just be that you are in a tight labour market and you are the only candidate they have seen. Hard evidence of whether the font matters or not is found by testing and measurement of results. Marketing departments in all sorts of industries test impact of content and font with randomized controlled trials.

    #3 Brian, I agree with you that if there is evidence that Times New Roman font used in CV's reduces your chances, then don't use it. There are lots and lots of people with "opinion" about what works in a CV. Not many of them support it with any real evidence.

    All good points.
    After serving in various management positions for the past 20 years, I've watched dozens of my worthy counterparts tossed to the curb while the incompetent "good old boys" shot up the ladder.
    I came up through the ranks, which used to the standard procedure. Back in the day, it worked very well.
    Fortunately, in addition to learning the industry, I learned to work the system and have managed to survive.
    Now, our management positions have become so stressful that no one from within our ranks wants the headaches.
    As a result, the company has been issuing ultimatums. Take the position or hit the road, which has led to the hiring of some poor saps off the street.
    However, the worst hires our organization has made have been at the highest levels. Instead of promoting those worthy from within, they've been hiring from the competitors or from outside the industry. Unfortunately, no matter how hard they try, they just can't seem to fit that square peg into that round hole.
    But, that doesn't prevent them from continually pounding away at it with a hammer until the entire organization has splintered into pieces.

    I've had some horrible managers, mediocre managers, and managers I'd have moved heaven & earth to support, but there is something that all of them shared that eventually led to my leaving; EGOS. I have seen heads swell so large you would think they were named king of the world. A manager admired in middle-management can become a egotistical ass in upper management. This is why I've always remember that old piece of advice: Be nice to those you meet on the way up because you just may see them again on the way down.
    Another big mistake is based on a theory I learned long ago: Promoting to Incompetency. I have seen it time and time again. They perform well at one level and get promoted until they are completely out of their element. Not all Management levels are equal; just because they ran a department well, or even a division well, does not mean they can run the company. A manager does not an executive make.

    One thing i have seen.. The hardest it is to find jobs.. The more Toxic Bosses are recruited... Ans there is a logic to it... when jobs are scarce middle management usually bring over friends and families to the business... these usually lack the experience and skills... But are protected by someone "UP" the ladder... Its Stressing & humiliating to live this experience (consider ME a survivor) Seen this.. Live thru this... Only way to get out of the cycle is find another job...

    Hi John

    Thanks for commenting. I agree that far to much money is spent on leadership programs that add very little value for the sole reason that as you said the wrong people are put onto leadershi roles in the first place. There needs to be a fundamental rethink on how we view talent mgt and leadership because current programs are tied to outdated compensation programs. By this i mean all large companies try to fit promotions and hiring into compensation programs that are not a good place to start. That is if they have a talented person they want to hire or promote internally the driving factor is always compensation and frameworks that believe you can only pay or promote someone if their role is a certain size which usually means assigning them a team. Rather than looking at the contribution the person makes as an individual and paying them accordingly without having to put them in charge of a team

    I have seen this in every company i have worked in. People being hired or promoted into leadership roles even though its known they are poor leaders simply because the compensation plan says the only way to do it is to give them a team. Until that mindset changes then nothing will change from a leadership perspective#3

    Jane, this is a topic that's close to my heart, albeit, very frustrating. Here are some things for you to consider and I'd appreciate your response, this is the most misunderstood aspect of business. Let's start with my first premise, just because your called a leader or you're in a leadership position, that doesn't make you a leader, it makes you someone whose called a leader, a big difference. Then their's the most prevalent argument, nature vs nurture, this is really the crux of the entire premise. People are usually equally divided or they'll suggest it's a bit of both. Here's my perspective and let me begin with the data. Billions of dollars are spent every year on leadership programs, if you consider the investment and the fact that there's little impact, that is telling, at least in my mind.
    Now let's go to the number of articles written on leadership, well over 10,000 and the variety of approaches and assumptions made, it's so wide and broad that it's mind boggling on the best of days. Then let's defer to nature, when we look at social groups in the animal kingdom, do we believe that every member of a pack can be a leader, no, that's never the case. Next, let's ask ourselves this question, if everyone could be a leader, what would the value of being a leader really be, it's no different than saying, we can all cook like Martha or golf like Tiger, no we can't and if we could, what would be the value.
    What makes human being's interesting is there complexity, yet we want to believe that we understand this complexity and the truth is we really don't, I'd argue that we don't even have a clue.

    Thank you for your artical. Typically, I treated people how I would a little anxious by now
    like to be treated as well, honestly, with enthusiasm, and tried to motivate and inspire them along the way. Ego is definitely part of everyone's character, but being able to motivate and inspire people leading that, is what makes a difference in a work place, no matter if you are a manager or a leader.
