Keep track of everything!

Organizing is one of my favorite things to do. Strong organizational skills often go hand-in-hand with other character traits desired by employers. People who are organized are often goal-oriented, have a strong work ethic, and keep track of deadlines. Here are more recommendations:

+Keep organizational folders (on your computer or in an old-school filing box) which include everything you've submitted to each potential employer. Do not forget which employer has what documents, when you submitted those documents, and if/when the potential employer contacted you.

+Create folders in your email account(s) for job-related correspondence. It is embarrassing to have a phone conversation with a potential employer and realize you do not remember applying for the job or anything about the organization.
