If I could go back and talk to my childhood self, oh the things I would say.
Starting off with a frank discussion about my crush on Lance Bass and ending with a tutorial on why yellow braces elastics don’t give a sunshine-like smile but instead make it look like I haven’t brushed in weeks; mini-me would get an earful on the ways of the world.
Over the past few years, I’ve learned more than just how to deal with my celebrity love life and dental aesthetics. As I aged, my wrinkles and my understanding of the employment world have deepened.
When I first started my job hunt, I thought that black sweatpants could count as business wear and a cover letter request was simply a suggestion. I have since lived and learned.
And it appears that I’m not the only one.
Hey, if you can’t share it with your early job-hunting self, why not share it with the Twitterverse and the thousands of students soon to become job-seekers? So, we put to it to our devoted TalentEgg Twitter following.
What do you wish you had known when you first started your job hunt?
