Today I’m launching a new series called, “Corny Questions”.  Part of the success of Corn on the Job comes from the fantastic community of recruiters, HR professionals, bloggers, career experts, and job seekers, so bringing their thoughts and opinions into the mix will help keep ideas fresh, information flowing, and possibly spark a few debates.

 

 

So, how does it work?  Every now and then I’ll be asking folks on Twitter and/or Facebook a job search or career related question, and then sharing their answers with you here.  Easy, right?

Today’s Question

Answers from Twitter

 

My Answers

  • Don’t be nervous, you are also interviewing the company.  Bring questions to grill them and decide if it’s a right fit for you.
  • I wish job seekers knew their interviewers.  Research them on LinkedIn and prepare for a few hours, not just 10 minutes.
  • I wish job seekers knew that they should only arrive to the office 10 minutes early, not one hour.
  • Job seekers should know your resume and skills like the back of your hand.  Looking down and saying, “umm” isn’t helping.

What is your answer to the question?
