1/25 Class CANCELED

Due to instructor illness, there will be no class today. Please make sure you email me your blog URL if you haven’t done so already. I’ve been adding the links to our main blog site so you can access your group members’ blogs. Remember that your first comments are due by 9 pm today and responses due by 9 am Monday.

If you’re looking ahead to next week’s assignment, you’ll notice there’s a letter or email to a public official due. Start thinking about who you might want to contact – a politician? provost? newspaper?

Interviewing Tips, How to Google

Interviewing Advice

Perhaps the most important tip to take from this article is:

Open conversation. Unlike simple yes-or-no questions, open-ended questions invite the respondent to talk — and enable you to gather much more information. “What do you like best about this company?” is likely to generate more valuable information than “Do you like this company?” Another tactic is to ask a question in the declarative format — “Tell me about that.” People who won’t answer questions sometimes respond better to a direct order.

How to Google

Think you know everything about searching the internet? Think again.
