Did I mess up this job interview by being evasive?

I think I more or less lied by omission in a job interview that I had a bit over a week ago. I am feeling a bit guilty about it and kind of mad at myself. Do those feelings seem warranted given the situation? Would this be a red flag for you as an employer if you found out about it? [more inside]

Interviews are done. Now what?

When is it appropriate to follow-up with a hiring manager after interviews (and reference checks) have been completed? I did ask for a timeline during the interview and I was told that they would be in touch "soon". The posting stated that they wanted someone to start in early October, when the position becomes vacant. [more inside]

Should interview reference information be kept confidential?

I found replies from my references on an intranet site (posted over a year ago), which is available to more than just the group who interviewed me. I'm pretty upset about this since some of the information given was very personal. I'm going to find out about getting it removed, but this is a site that is backed up nightly, so it has also been archived. I'm not sure whether I should go to HR also to ask about the policy.

Use person vacating the post as a ref for my app for same?

I am applying for a job, and of course references are requested. One of my best potential references, who I have worked with fairly extensively, is also the person vacating the position I am applying for, and for all I know could be interviewing me. Is it weird to use him as a reference? [more inside]

Awkward reference quandry... how to proceed?

It it unwise to bank on a prospective employer not calling my references unless I am interviewed? I'm applying for a job that is admittedly a long shot, and I’d rather not call and ask people to be my references unless I am actually in the running (for various snowflake reasons detailed at length within). Is it a horrendous faux pas to list references without asking their permission, if I'm fairly certain I won’t get called for an interview? On the other hand, is it a horrendous faux pas not to send references with my resume and cover letter, when the job posting specifically asks for them? [more inside]

Getting a reference from a company with a no reference policy.

A coworker agreed to be one of my references-awesome! She then informed me that my company has a no reference policy. Should I put her name down? [more inside]

Hire me! Or, you know, convince someone else to do it for you.

I'm applying for post-grad school jobs. One of them, a bit of a long shot, is within my close-knit current office. Others are elsewhere in and outside of the organization. Difficulty: my two best references are not only in this office but running the first job search. How in the world do I manage this? [more inside]
