Getting a job, interview tips and more

Network!! Look and listen!! Don’t be intimidated by “requirements.” Can I live with this? Stay humble but hungry.

Here is a great post on tools you can use to make yourself stand out when applying for a job. And note what he says: RESUMES SHOULD BE ONE PAGE! JUST ONE! ONLY ONE!

Interview tips:

Be early.

Dress nice.

Do your homework on the company, the people….and the competition.

Take notes.

Have questions, even basic ones. Examples: typical work day? Why do they work there? Highlight this year? Goals?

If you’re stumped, stall effectively.Examples: Restate the question. Tell you what it won’t be.

Eye contact.

Posture.

Bring examples.

Always bring ideas.

Please and thank you.

Follow up.

Ask for feedback either way.

Lie…maybe.
