Dear Experts, After passing an extensive phone-screen interview by the hiring manager, I have the good fortune of making it to the next level; an all-day (including lunch) on-site interview with four different people (an hour with each person) at a prospective company. Naturally I'm thrilled. What is your advice as to how to ace this important step? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter:Q#481 Expect anything including skill/personality tests, panel interviews, one-on-ones. Rehearse ur answrs. Have questions of your own. (@juliaerickson) Q#481 Be prepared, take notes between meetings (during bathroom break). Show how you solve their problems. Smile. Send 'thank you' to each. (@keppie_careers) Q#481 Try to stay upbeat. The long day will probably wear on you, but stay positive, be energetic, etc. (@beneubanks) Q#481 Just be yourself. Try your best to be calm and relaxed. The rest should fall into place. (@gradversity) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.

  • Possibility of a hacker compromising customer data for spam or identity theft
  • The fear that a customer data breach will result in a reputational damage
  • Concern that someone might use a stolen card to make an online purchase
  • Thoughts of an employee mistakenly sending confidential data to a wrong email
