Tips for longtime employees testing the job market
People who have been at the same job for many years tend to underestimate their accomplishments when they test the job market, says Patricia Siderius of BPI group. Demonstrate your industry knowledge in interviews to counteract the stereotype that you've become complacent. "Having stayed in one place for a long time does not make you dreary and dusty," Siderius says. Fortune (4/9)

The Landscape
Commentary: Long-term-unemployment policies are hurting companies
Companies would gain access to a host of highly qualified and talented candidates if they were more liberal about hiring applicants who have been out of work for longer than six months, writes Terry Terhark of ADP. Organizations should actively seek the long-term unemployed by partnering with nonprofit agencies and by tweaking their applicant-screening tools, Terhark writes. Human Resource Executive (4/8)

Your Next Challenge
Employers can't ask these questions in interviews
If you've been asked your religious affiliation or political leanings, or about your ethnicity in an interview, you've been subjected to an off-limits question, Jenny Che writes. If you're asked whether you're in debt or whether you drink socially, try to redirect the conversation by reaffirming your reliability. The Huffington Post (4/9)
