I just don't know how to approach relationships with coworkers. People seem friendly at work, and we joke around and stuff, but I don't know anything about them outside work. I know this company has a pretty cut-throat promotion policy... are they just being nice to me so they can beat me to a promotion or are we actually friends or what? I don't like mind games. Should I even try to be friends with people at work?

Not friends just friendly associates. Never give to much personal info out either. Just be nice to them and don't... see more

I went to a interview and the manager who set up the interview was not even there. So the other manager comes out and gave me a handshake that barely touched my hand. I did the interview and after I went to shake his hand again and it was like a weaker super fast tap it was weird. That is clearly not proffessional

You’re RIGHT! A good firm handshake is vital for commitment in anything and just good rapport!

Smile and a handshake! Body language speaks volumes. Be attentive and maintain eye contact out of respect to your peers.

That's right! It's the fastest way to catch a interviewer attention.

The best advice I could give you is to always dress professionally when you go to Four Seasons General Merchandise looking for employment. Always ask if you can be interviewed. Have two copies of your resume plus your if, SS card and a copy of your latest degree. Be ready to take a math and writing test. Arrive 15 minutes early to your interview.

NIce advice Rosalina, thank you and congratulations on the new job!

When you post things on this network or any network, do you realize you are making a very public statement? Many of you use your full name and post the company. I know for a fact that if HR picks you out for an interview, someone is going Google your name before you make it into the front door. If you are lucky and have a common name like John Smith, then it may harder find you but if you have a more unique name, you are much easier to find and... see more

Or are there idiots at Job Fairs in other cities/states?

When you read the ad in the newspaper, and it says, Business attire mandatory or Please bring plenty of résumés...what do YOU think it means?

• At SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many job fairs, I see job seekers wearing shorts, Hawaiian shirts, sandals (during the summer; during colder weather, it's jogging suits and Nikes).

• One particular job fair was memorable for the woman dressed up in... see more

I have a question about professionalism. As a job seeker, I know that I will ultimately have to jump through many professional hurdles (whether I agree with the hurdle or not). I know that it's just something I have to do. I know that I have to bring my A-game to every interview to even have the slightest chance at getting to the next step. I also know that I have to cater my rhetoric during the interview to the job (i.e. there are things I... see more
