    Tags: interviewing, Lifehacker   

    “You go and do this… And totally redeem yourself!!” 

    20120318-115231.jpg

    A while back, I wrote a rant about Lifehacker telling job candidates to be brief, and skip the cover letter.

    Today, they’ve redeemed themselves by posting an article recommending job candidates actually “research” the company they are interviewing with before attending the interview.

    I can’t tell you how disappointing it is to interview a candidate just looking for a job. Employers these days want to feel like you actually care where you spend 8+ hours a day.

    My tips include: Know what they make, know how they sell it, and try to figure out why they think they are different. Then, discuss what you could do to help. That type of discussion will make your resume jump to the top of the pile – and ends up being more of a conversation about you, rather that a conversation about your skills (which frankly, gets very old after 3 or 4 candidates).

    Good luck!

    Using MS CRM Online? Don’t forget to grab your SkyDrive! 

    As I mentioned to my customer today, if you are using Microsoft CRM Online, then you already have a “Windows Live” user id.  This automatically makes you eligible for afree 25gig “hard drive in the sky”.  I use it to send large files to customers, or work on “collaborative” ideas and initiatives.

    Since CRM Online currently only gives you 5gigs with your subscription, this is a great way to minimize your storage footprint in CRM yet still get files back-and-forth to your customers.

    Log on to your SkyDrive here.
