Tip #2 Take that extra step:

  • If you apply on Handshake take the extra step and call the hiring manager for the position. Even though you apply on Handshake, send a follow up e-mail to the hiring manager along with a cover letter stating you applied through Handshake but wanted to also send your resume via e-mail to make sure the hiring manager received it.
  • Express enthusiasm when applying both on the phone and through e-mail and why you would like to work for them.
  • Do your homework and have an understanding of the department you want to work for.
  • Dress professionally.
