1. Trying to be a jack of all trades.
It may have looked great on your business grad school applications to list all of your extracurricular and volunteer activities, but an employer wants to know specifically how you’ll make a contribution to their team.
That’s not to say that you can’t apply for jobs that aren’t directly related to your major, but something on your resume, or in your interview answers must indicate why you are a good fit for that particular position/company. For instance, something like, “My work with the student newspaper taught me how to manage a project within a specific budget, and on deadline.”
2. Thinking employers will come flocking to them.
Once upon a time, a couple of generations ago, you might have heard about graduates being offered jobs on the spot by corporate recruiters, simply because they had strong GPAs. That sort of thing just doesn’t happen these days (well, except for maybe an elite few). Expect to pound the pavement, attend job fairs, build a network, and hone your resume if you want to get noticed and stand out in a good way.
3. Not tailoring cover letters and resumes to the job listing.
When you’re applying for a job, take the time to find out the name of the hiring manager (“to whom it may concern” is an instant turn off!). Then, be sure to read the listing and match your qualifications and experience to what the company is looking for in terms of their needs. It will show that you went the extra mile.
4. Only inquiring about jobs that are listed.
There’s some stat out there that only 15 percent of hires result from help wanted ads. The fact is, many job openings are simply not posted on online job boards, but that doesn’t mean that your dream company isn’t hiring.
Sending out letters of interest along with your resume is a good way to at least be brought in for a meeting, get on the radar of and connect with someone at the company, or even be put at the top of the pile should a position open up.
5. Not maintaining employer-friendly social media accounts.
You might think a killer LinkedIn profile is all you need to look good to a potential employer, but think again. Many recruiters and HR professionals will Google you, check out your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts, and even dig up nasty comments you left on someone’s blog two years ago. Keep a clean digital footprint, or it will come back to haunt you.
6. Dressing like a student.
There’s no such thing as overdressing for an interview. When in doubt, go with the suit and tie, even if you suspect a more casual workplace environment. This applies to on-campus career fairs as well. Showing up in jeans and a college sweatshirt will not leave a favorable impression of you as a potential employee.
7. Thinking too narrowly about where to apply.
Just because you majored in accounting doesn’t mean you can only work for an accounting firm. Nearly every business needs to have a financial whiz on staff to manage things like payroll, accounts receivable, budgets, and so on. In other words, don’t be afraid to venture outside of the few companies that you’ve imagined yourself working for. Consider the possibilities across other industries, too.
The key is to put yourself out there, but in an intelligent, well thought out way. Happy hunting!

Starting a new job can be exciting — and a bit nerve-racking. In addition to having to master new tasks and understand new procedures, you’ll have to navigate an often complex social network that exists at the company.
Use these five dos and five don’ts to make your transition from new hire to trusted colleague.
1. Act friendly at all times, even if you’re feeling frazzled from all the new information you’re trying to process.
2. Be inquisitive with your coworkers. Make small talk about popular television shows (“Did anyone watch ‘The Office’ last night?”) or sporting events to spark conversations that are cordial without being too personal.
3. Ask your new coworkers to recommend good places to grab a cup of coffee, buy breakfast, eat lunch and shop. This will help you gain common social ground with colleagues and may also spark an invitation to one of the venues.
4. Give colleagues time to warm up to you gradually.
5. Bring in a tasty treat from home to leave in the lunchroom for all to enjoy. Cupcakes, cookies or fresh fruit are always crowd-pleasers.
1. Don’t insinuate yourself into other people’s personal conversations. If you’re perceived as invasive, it will be hard to win your coworkers’ trust.
2. Don’t expect to immediately hear all the strange-but-true tales that involve your colleagues. You’ll learn all about the infamous holiday party of 2007 soon enough.
3. Don’t constantly reference your former place of employment. (“At my last job, we did things this way.”) You’ll cause coworkers to wonder why you don’t go back to work there.
4. Don’t start inviting people to come see your band play or watch your off-off-off-Broadway debut. Wait for others to express an interest in your extracurricular pursuits before assuming they want to be in the audience.
5. Don’t immediately ask people to join your online network (BeKnown, Facebook, Plaxo). Your network should consist of people with whom you have a relationship rather than just someone who happens to have the same employer as you.
By JIM PAWLAK
You thought the interview went well. Then you got a call from a human resources staffer. “You’re overqualified” was the message. Just what does overqualified mean? After all, you weren’t overqualified before the interview. An employer wouldn’t waste time interviewing people who were overqualified.
If you hear those dreaded words, it means you flunked the interview. You talked your way out of a job not into one. How? Probably by talking too much about your total work experience rather than focusing on those experiences that apply directly to the position for which you’re interviewing.
In an effort to impress, you may have told the interviewer about tasks on your last job that aren’t part of the new position. That waves a red flag that you may become bored, and you’re not a good fit. Oops. That isn’t what a prospective employer wants to hear.
How can you avoid foot-in-mouth disease? By remembering that the key to a winning interview is the same as that of a successful sales call. Sales are made because the product satisfies a customer’s needs. The bells and whistles don’t matter.
A savvy salesperson finds out what their prospect needs before starting his/her presentation. Uncover the customer’s hot buttons by asking questions and taking cues from the target’s answers.
How can you find out what an interviewer needs? Start by asking questions instead of answering them. As soon as you can, get the interviewer to go over the job description to pinpoint what the job entails and how it relates to other areas of the firm. Ask questions like: “What are the key job functions?”, “What are the top priorities?”, “What are your ninety-day, six-month and one-year expectations for the person who fills the job?”, “What traits are needed to be successful in the job?” and “Who are the key people and departments the job holder will interact with?”
These probe the interviewer in a positive, non-threatening manner and show your interest in the job, the department and the firm. Their answers will show you how to tailor a discussion of your experience to the job’s qualifications and the interviewer’s needs. You’ll also have a good idea of what types of questions other interviewers are apt to ask.
In addition to talking too much about experience that is meaningless to interviewers, there is another subject that often ends up tagging a job hunter as overqualified. That subject is compensation. All too frequently, overqualified really means: “We can’t pay you what you were making.”
Usually, job hunters that strike out on the compensation issue name their price before finding out what the company is willing to pay.
How do you work around the issue? Three ways: 1. Do some research on the going price for the position. There are all sorts of local, state and federal salary surveys available at the library and online; salary.com offers free and premium services. Contact professional associations for salary information, too. Unless a firm’s salary structure is completely out of whack with the reality of the labor market, your survey results should put you in the ballpark.
Armed with this knowledge, you can respond to a question about compensation one of three ways: 1. “Some recent surveys from (insert sources) indicate pay for similar positions ranges from $X to $Y. That’s workable for me.”
2. Taking a page from Successful Selling 101, a salesperson will ask about a customer’s budget before quoting a price. Job hunters can apply that same technique by asking about the pay range for the position. Just don’t be the first to bring up the compensation issue.
3. Respond with a non-specific answer like: “Compensation isn’t what drives me. I’m looking for a job that challenges me to do my best every day. I’m sure your firm would fairly compensate me for the work I would do.”
