Preparing for your job search
Before applying for a job, it's a good idea to look inward and think about what you
have to offer and where you can add the most value. Then, it's time to create cover
letters and resumes that will stand out among the competition.
Professional social networking
If leveraged properly, LinkedIn, B-connected, e-mail - and even Facebook and Twitter
- can help you connect with the right people, get a foot in the door for interviews,
and eventually land a job!
Have you developed and practiced your elevator speech? Do you know how to make a
positive impression? We have advice to help you nail the traditional one-on-one interview
as well as the other situations you could encounter.
Closing the deal
Congratulations - you nailed the interview! The game is not over just yet. Effectively
following up after the interview can reinforce the positive impression you made and
help get you hired.
