Your quiet/introverted student may avoid campus networking events like the plague. Ultimately the NETWORK (noun) is more important than NETWORKING (verb), and the quality of conversations and relationships with professors, peers and co-workers is more important than the quantity of business cards collected. – Thank you to The Quiet Leadership Institute for this insight
Interviews are less scary when you're prepared.
Show the recruiter you’re truly interested in the job by taking time to fully research the company and its services/products beforehand.
Turn off your phone (and only look at it if you need to access your schedule for a second interview).
Ask questions to demonstrate interest in the position, clarify what you don’t understand, and determine if the job/company/culture is a good fit.
Within 24 hours, write a customized thank you email to each person who interviewed you (don’t just “cut and paste”).
