BAS KOHNKE  Interviews can be tough for both parties. Both sides want to find the right fit. As a candidate, you want to determine whether or not this is a place at which you can build your career and grow. Meanwhile, the employer wants to make sure you will not only be a great employee, but also bring something unique to the company. The question is: How do you figure out fit in an hour or less?

Transforming Performance Reviews From Events Into a Process

by: MICHAEL HELLER  All too often, companies treat performance reviews like events. They happen once a year, and in the meantime, many dread what this reviews might hold once that time of year rolls around again. Performance reviews seem to be a once yearly affair for many organizations, but companies would do well to turn them into a continuous, ongoing process instead.
