On the Hunt

Travis Medley at Bitesize Bio offers some tips for job interviews. Pretend your job interview begins three miles away from the office, Medley says. That way if your interviewer is in the car next to you, you aren't cutting people off, smoking, or drumming on your steering wheel. He also says to assume that you are being watched from the moment you enter the parking lot and that you should act confident and polite — many hiring managers listen to their receptionists' opinions about interviewees. "Do not fool yourself, this meeting is about being liked more than it is about skills," he writes.
