Sigh.  I don’t know why I’m still surprised at the candidate who shows up for the intereview wearing a rumpled flannel, wallet chain, and combat boots.  Or the candidate who immediately asks me about salary – you don’t want to waste your time, which is smart & efficient and all of that, but maybe assume that I’m smart enough not to waste either of our time if you’re not in the range.  Salary discussison deserve their own posting, and I’m planning on serving one up soon, but just trust me that it’s the equivalent of bringing up the wedding on a first date.   For some more common sense tips/ mistakes to avoid, head on over to this post on Beth Gilfeather’s blog.  Happy hunting.
