A friend and I have been discussing creating a site wherein we interview people from various professions about how customers/clients can make their job easier, make their day a bit better, et cetera. We're in the process of seeking out folks with various jobs and we could use some advice about what kind of people we ought to seek out. [more inside]
I recently had a job interview at a perfect-for-my-current-circumstances employer. I thought the interview was okay but I could've done better. Didn't hear a peep for two weeks. I received an email this Tuesday asking if I could come in this Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday to interview for a different and higher-paying position. I'm looking for some advice on how to handle interview #2 tomorrow. Confusion & mitigating circumstances inside! [more inside]
About a week and a half ago, I applied for a job that I would be perfect for. I'm getting antsy. Should I sent a follow-up note? [more inside]

I'm planning to ask for job advice on behalf of my partner, from my future graduate advisor, because my partner's interested in a job opening at my future graduate school. Totally acceptable / useful thing to do, or a horrible violation of academic etiquette? [more inside]
Multiple brand new jobs opening at my company. Was planning to apply for all of them, as they're fairly the same. However, was just told there's a particular job coming open, and supervisors want to sponsor me as the applicant of choice. Apply for one job, or apply for all? Specifics inside. [more inside]
I am in the midst of applications for professional positions in my field. Often the people doing the hiring will fly interview candidates out to their location for a day-long interview process, which includes meals with people on the search committee. How can I gracefully request that they accommodate my vegan diet? [more inside]
What's the best way to inform your employer that you're looking / have found new employment? [more inside]
I really want to work for you, but if that's not going to happen then I really want to go to Europe.
Following up on a second job interview: they said the selection process would be "very quick." It's now been two weeks without hearing back from them. Do I follow up? I'd be happy to be patient, but there's a twist. [more inside]
[HR/employmentfilter] Is it very unorthodox or unacceptable to 'circumvent' an agency who put you forward for a job and ask questions of the employer directly? (UK if it matters) [more inside]
I am unemployed. I recently applied for 2 jobs. I'm much, much more interested in Job A. I will find out if I got Job B on Monday, while the application process for Job A will drag on until early March. Would it be unacceptable for me to accept Job B, while holding out for the potential of Job A? Job B is a full-time, junior position at popular website with a small, close-knit staff.
