University careers fairs: How to find your dream job
The Telegraph    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Careers fairs can seem a little like speed dating. It's easy to become lost in a sea of candidates battling for a brief chat with the most attractive employer. Often the difference between a successful event and a waste of time comes down to just a few small details.

But even before that, they will be evaluating your words closely, including what you don't say — especially if they read a book like Spy the Lie. More

The most outlandish résumé mistakes of 2012
Yahoo! Finance    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Unless you're applying for a job at a pizzeria, your résumé objective shouldn't say, 'to make dough'. Nor should it be decorated with pink rabbits or include texting slang like 'LOL'. Candidates have actually made all of these mistakes, among many others — and while they probably caught the attention of their potential employer, chances are they didn't land the job. These blunders did, however, earn them a spot on a new compilation of hiring managers' most memorable résumé missteps. More
