Can I Wear My Nose Ring to the Interview?" takes readers step-by-step through a process that was always tough, but is today especially challenging. Begin the search with a professional mindset - get organized, and set yourself up with business cards, a respectable e-mail address, and a working mobile phone. The importance of networking and the rule of three - try to make three e-mails or phone calls a day, but never more than that. The 'lift speech' - hone your pitch to the length of an lift ride and be prepared to use it at the most unexpected times. The art of writing cringe-free cover letters and killer resumes - from timelines, hooks, and grammatical do's and don'ts to why you should never use the phrase 'Reference available upon request', and never, ever make a typo. This title discusses about: how to dress for an interview, including why to put on your business clothes when interviewing at home, over the phone; things to be honest about - citizenship and past salary range; and, things not to say: 'I want this job because I need health insurance'. Then once you're in, it tells how to negotiate salary, what to expect in a review, and basic first job common sense: take initiative, be humble and helpful, never use your boss as a confidant, and always say 'I'll find out' instead of 'I don't know'. Now you're on your way.
