Be Nice to the Secretary

According to a national survey of executives, over 90% consider the advice of their administrative assistants to be important when making hiring decisions. Remember this when you arrive for your interview! You are being evaluated by everyone you come in contact with, regardless of whether or not they are part of the official interview process. Smile, give a firm handshake, and express your thanks and appreciation. Remember everyone's name and ask for business cards where appropriate so that you may follow up with a note of thanks.
