Latest Tips
#16

KEEP A PEN ON YOU:  Always have a pen on you.  I can't tell you how much aggravation this will save.  Find a good pen that has a strong, metal clasp.  Make sure it is always clasped to your shirt or pants pocket.  This will always leave you prepared to right down notes on the fly.  And the most important part, never leave it behind.  This works even better when you've always got a small notepad handy too.

#11 WORK FOR THE BEST: Seek the most important person in the company or, alternatively, the most high-up-ish person in the area you’re most interested in. Aim for landing the job to work closest to them. Assistant, Coordinator, Manager, whatever. This way, you’ll have built-in mentors where it counts.
#5 GREET THE RECEPTIONIST: This is just standard. Even if the person is cranky or mean, always say hello and be sincere. They could potentially hold a lot of information and can even be a source of support. Plus, they're usually the ones that hold and control your calls.  Be nice.
