SGES cited in Forbes.com article “Don’t Get Stumped In The Interview: The New NEW Interview Questions”

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

Susan Goldberg and her retained executive search and career coaching firm were mentioned in the most recent edition of Forbes.com in an article about interviewing.  The information was drawn  from the “Secrets of Interviewing” presentation which Susan had presented at Carole Hyatt’s Salon for networking on March 24, 2010 (see earlier news item),  and from a telephone interview and subsequent email exchanges between the journalist and SGES’ Owner and Principal.  It appeared from the interview and email exchanges, that what had most interested the journalist, who was in attendance the evening of the presentation, were the specific examples of recent trends in interviewing questions that Susan detailed at the end of the presentation.  Those examples were a combination of  interviewing questions which Susan, herself,  had used for particular retained search clients who were trying to determine the potential employee fit for their organization along with those questions which she gathered from discussions with a sample of cutting-edge small business owners for the same purpose.  The specific questions will be discussed in an upcoming article in “Woman Around Town”.   To view the complete article in Forbes.com, please click on http://www.forbes.com/2010/05/06/job-interview-questions-personality-forbes-woman-leadership-career.html.  If you are viewing this as a blog and would like to learn more about SGES, please visit www.susangoldbergsearch.com.
