Here are three simple job hunting tips for you to begin your week!
- Do some research to know what kind of fashion statement to make at your interview. Generally speaking you can't go wrong with a current but conservative suit. However, if the company you're interviewing with is particularly fashionable or edgy, that may not be the way to go. Cultural fit matters, and interviewers can be kind of judgy if you wear an outfit that's too far off the mark.
- Ask for a business card of your interviewer. Got to have their name and address right to send a thank you note...
- It's not considered good form to show up at an office unannounced asking to meet with the recruiter / hiring manager / anybody. Unless the company's advertisement suggests that this is how they'd like to be approached, don't visit without an appointment.
