Interviewing Strategy

Interviewing is often one of the most stressful parts of a job search, and it can get even trickier after you've been diagnosed with cancer. A recent post on our Ask a Career Coach center posed an important question about how to get detailed benefits information during the interviewing process, especially when health insurance is a key concern but you don't want to raise any red flags.  Another recent question asked whether to address ongoing chemo appointments when going to interviews. The answers to these, and more interview-specific questions can be found by clicking here.

If you're looking for additional insight on how to feel more confident during interviews, we have a lot of resources to help:
