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!
A very prominent alumna passed this along for me to share with you all.
Do your homework on the company, the people….and the competition.
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.
Always bring ideas.
Please and thank you.
Ask for feedback either way.
