If you're graduating soon, your last month in school will likely be divided between hitting the books, possibly going to a party or two, and searching for a job. One way to help your career prospects is to conduct informational interviews.
All honors are not equal. For example, being named your company’s “Employee of the Year” will likely impress prospective employers; winning a neighborhood poker tournament probably won’t hold as much weight. Many applicants make the mistake of including so-called honors and accomplishments in their resumes that are dated or irrelevant to the job they’re seeking.
It may feel good to be in demand – so much so that your current employer presents you with a counter offer after you've accepted another job – but should you be tempted to stay? A recent TCG survey reveals that your loyalty may come into question if you're willing to accept a counter offer.
Authors often use analogies to paint more detailed pictures and deepen a reader’s understanding. By making comparisons between different people or objects, writers can spotlight similarities, adding both clarity and flavor to a piece of writing.
