What is the weirdest job hunting tip you ever given someone?
I was just curious. While trying to help my oldest child, who decided to work full-time instead of going to college, I gave him a tip on a company he should check out. When asked how did I know the company, I told him I read it in someone's obituary (yes, I still read the newspaper). Although sort of creepy, he thought it was an interesting take on finding a job. I wasn't suggesting to take the job of the guy who died but check out the company and see what they have to offer. Hey I have morals :-)!
I've never gave a weird tip but my friend once told me to say to a job I applied for: "I won't take no for a answer!"
Pretend like you know what you are talking about even if you have no experience. That landed me not only in a high paying position, but I had a salary war by 5 top companies in a large city. Obviously this won't work for everyone. I had the smarts, so I knew I could do the work. I just didn't have the experience. It paid off because when I was given my first huge project, I got it right the first time!
