I say it to students all the time. Finding a job is kind of like….dating. Think about it. You’re trying to impress someone, but you don’t want to seem overbearing and arrogant. You want to show someone that you know a little something about them….without seeming creepy. You want to highlight the fact that you’re a match made in heaven. Employer or love interest…it’s pretty similar.
Now, perhaps you’re reading this and thinking…”Great, I’m not so suave at the dating…there’s no hope of a job!” But fear not! Follow these simple guidelines, and you’ll come off like a pro in the job search. But sorry, we can’t make any promises when it comes to your love life.
