It's asked all the time - it’s the universal way to wrap up an interview. The last question an interviewer will almost always ask is, “Do you have any other questions for me?”

The constant here is that every single person that answers that question with some form of “No” misses a great opportunity to reclaim the interview. Because as much as the interviewer is interviewing you, you’re also interviewing them.

5 Things Being an Intern and a 'Survivor' Contestant Have in Common

By Julia Sokolowski

At 18 I applied to be a contestant on Survivor, completely on a whim. Four days later I received a phone call from CBS, and within weeks the Survivor Entertainment Group flew me out to Los Angeles to begin the vetting process, including a variety of physical and psychological tests and interviews conducted by everyone from casting directors to field producers, and even the show’s host, Jeff Probst.

The final step of the casting process was the most important: I had to pitch myself to the network. I walked into a room where over a dozen executives sat in a semicircle of chairs. Petrified, I stood front and center. I opened my mouth to say, “Hi, I’m Julia. I’m 18-years-old and –” … but before I could finish, I was grilled.

Why Today’s “Working Mom” is Your Company's Best Asset

By Laurie Aquilante

I’d only been back to work from maternity leave for a few weeks when my son came down with an awful cold. My husband took him to the doctor and they gave us some advice: The more you can breastfeed him, directly from your body versus pumping, the faster he’ll get better.

Crap.

That was my honest reaction to my first conflict between motherhood and my career.

You've got it all: projects you’re passionate about, a manager who supports your career growth, an office culture you can buy into, and coworkers you love working with every day.

And then the internship ends.

When you’re lucky enough to land an internship with substantive work that’s pushing you to learn and grow every day, it can be difficult to say goodbye when the semester or summer comes to an end. But what if you could leverage that experience to land a permanent, full-time role after graduation?

5 Simple Ways to De-Stress at Work

By Maggie Bertram

Let’s face it, many of us believe our jobs are our primary sources of stress. With projects to keep up with, meetings to attend, and emails to write, there just isn’t enough time (or coffee) in a day.

That's why here at HubSpot we try to find small and easy ways to bring balance to employees' day-to-days.

Having a work-life balance and ways to de-stress during the workday minimize burnout and keep us happy and healthy when we come in each morning. So, here are five simple ways you can boost your own mental wellness and find a little relaxation during the 9 to 5.

What to Wear for a Tech Job Interview

By Devon Brown

My love affair with fashion started at the ripe age of five, when I started requesting clothes instead of toys for birthday and Christmas gifts. While I’d never consider myself a fashionista, putting together a “look” is a cause near and dear to my heart. And I’m not the only one: Most candidates I talk to during their recruiting process ask the pressing question, “What should I wear for my tech job interview?”
