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]

Interview driving traffic to a website?

I have a two part question. I've just interviewed well known performer who has just released his first solo CD. He owns all of the rights to the lyrics and music, and his own company published the CD. A radio station I'm associated with plans to put the interview online, as well as broadcast it within the week. If the musician is OK with me putting it on my own website, how might it drive traffic to his site and my site? And is there anything extra I can to make it attract listeners and drive that traffic?

Do you remember this study about deep/meaningful conversations?

There was a study a few years back where they had two people meet and discuss a list of questions. The control pairs got a basic set of superficial interview questions (what's your name, do you have siblings, where are you from) and the other got a specially designed set of questions that increasingly went into meaningful, personal topics. At the end, pairs in the test group tended to report a deep bond with their partner and went on to become friends after the study. Can you find me the study and/or the questions?

How do I thank multiple interviewers for a single position?

I want to send a post-interview thank you email but I am a little unclear as to the best way of going about it. I had five 30 minute sessions with one to two employees each; the last session was with the head of the group I'd be working for. Should I send one email to all employees, an email to each session group, an email to only the senior interviewers (3 people), or some other iteration?

Interview Scheduling & the new grad - advice?

I'm a recent MLIS grad who just scored an interview with a municipal information management office. Unfortunately, the job is 4 hours away and Greyhound can't get me there for a face to face interview before mid afternoon. I plan to ask about interview slots in the late afternoon, but would it be unreasonable to ask about a skype interview if none are available? Other suggestions are also very welcome.

Question about interviewing the interviewers

Question about interviewing the interviewers: International differences?..I was taught at uni that its a good idea to treat the interview as a bit of a test run, in other words interview the interviewers to see if you really would like the job that is being offered by asking a few interesting questions etc....but when I tell people (In Australia) about this idea they are horrified and seem to think that's a sure fire way to talk yourself out of a potential job. What do mefites think? Can anyone give me a good rationale why you should pretend you are interviewing the employer? Was I taught the wrong thing? Am I explaining it wrong?

Can you name something German?

There's a German, or Austrian comedian that goes around the US in public places dense with pedestrians and asks questions (mock interview style) about Germany, while playing up a euro-german sort of archetype. I have searched to no avail, if anyone could link or send a name it would very appreciated. And, it is so funny if I don't see it I will die. Thanks!

Should I be paid for the work I produced in this interview?

I recently attended a job interview which included a copywriting test - I was given some facts about an upcoming event and asked to write a press release. I did not get the job, however, the press release was released exactly as I wrote it (without my byline) and was picked up by a small local news blog and a local religious newspaper, as well as being used in the organisation's internal newsletter. The headline I wrote was also tweeted with a link to the event info on the organisation's website. [more inside]

How to get a supervisor recommendation when policy says I can't.

I am currently wanting to apply for some job openings within my field (library) and external. Per the norm, the employer wants at least one current work recommendation from a supervisor. The problem: at my workplace no employees are allowed to give work recommendations based on issues of legality that would make the library liable. How in the hell do I then put down a recommendation from a boss who likes me but will not do a recommendation? My previous job experience though not spotty was in retail with no promotion to speak of. I have been also using my professor(s) from grad school 6 years ago who happily remembers my scholastic performance. What would you do? Thanks for your thoughts.

Why are you the best?

I have a final interview for a Project Manager position. This job is awesome. One of the questions they would like me to answer is "Why are you the best candidate for this position?". How do I blow them away with my answer? The role requires someone who is passionate about work and life, can juggle multiple projects, and can managed a range of different stakeholders. I can do all of this like nobody's business. But I am sure a lot of the other candidates can as well. How do I approach answering this question and winning this position?
