When's an appropriate time frame to go in for a follow-up? Because I applied at a restaurant on Tuesday and had an interview immediately. I went in on Thursday to follow-up, but my interviewer wasn't there. Now I won't be able to go in until Tuesday. Is a week acceptable?

You got that right. Wink


What do you mean "to follow up"?

Go in and talk to the guy, ask him if they're still hiring and if he needs any additional references or...anything else you may suggest?

Send a thank you note in which you mention that you will be contacting him soon to discuss things further.

Don't barge in.

You... you devil you.

I strongly suggest that if she lets you stick it in her, you go for it.

You won't be wanting that job, but what the hell... you'll be getting some "hot" ass and most likely need it.

I worked for a law office for a while, and man, you called it on the dress code. I got so tired of having to talk to big fat dudes who do not understand that, yes, you have man-boobs, and they press up against that thin dress-shirt of yours so that they are clearly visible and very distracting.

Also, spot-on with the haircuts. The supermodel tousled-hair look just makes it look like you're going to try to score with everyone in the office. Long hair, even well-kept is considered a real no, because interviewers see it as a sign of attention-grabbing, and if you're one of those metal-heads who doesn't wash his hair so his face is covered in acne, you look like you're carrying a disease.

You also forgot to mention that you should have your suit STEAM-CLEANED before the meeting, especially if you're a smoker. Don't use those dumb little bags that you put a scented tissue in with the suit in your laundry cleaner. I mean a legitimate steam-cleaning business with those kick-ass-looking motorized racks. Suits reek when they sit in a closet forever, and the smell tends to mix with B.O. to make you into "that guy."


So here's to you Mrs. Robinson. People love you more- oh, nevermind.

Sir, you are correct.

I need to add some stuff about cleaning and smoke.

I also need to make an amendment about sleep. Bags under your eyes = bad bad bad.

Really comprehensive, it's actually a lot better than stuff I've seen in magazines.

I have to add a story here. I went for a job interview once and I had an awful cold. I thought it would be a bad thing if I went to it with snot running down my nose so I double up on the Sudafed 24 hour tabs to make sure I didn't have a runny nose during my interview. There were five freaking interviews that day back to back for the same company. By the second interview I might as well as emptied a salt shaker in my mouth, because my mouth was so dry my tongue was sticking to the roof of my mouth. The third interview offered me a bottled water (whether he knew my problem or it was standard practice I'll never know) and I swear that is the only reason I got the job. If I didn't have the water I don't know what the hell what have happened, so my word of advice is don't over-medicate yourself if you are sick and always make sure you are well hydrated. Does that apply to most people, probably not, but that was a very awkward day for me.

I was looking for my dream job, but I wasn’t 100% sure how to get it, given the current state of my resume. In fact, I barely had a resume to begin with. Fortunately, I stumbled upon this website, https://www.resumance.com/, which has rounded up some of the best resume-writing services online. I’m talking about a bunch of pros who can help job-seekers define and organize relevant job skills to attract the right people and job opportunities. Did I get what I paid for? I’d say yes, and what I got back was well-beyond what I initially expected.

I do not agree that the question of style and the clothes that you wear to an interview, it is only a women's issue. Men must dress appropriately for interviews as well. Although some people probably think that this doesn't concern them. Although the issue of working clothes is very relevant now. Most company employees no longer wear costumes. When I just submitted my resume to the company I work in now, thank https://top5resumewriting.services for it, I saw that my superiors do not care about clothes at all. We have a free dress code. So it's better to find out about this before you go to the interview.

I will continue to wear my Hurricane costume to work until they forcibly remove it from me.
