CALLING all students...

Are you looking for a job or internship?
Submitting your resume?
Leaving your cell number for employers to call?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, take a look at the tips below to ensure you get a call!
Do answer unknown numbers professionally. Example: Hi, this is John.

Do have a brief, and informative voicemail message. Example: You've reached Molly. I can't answer my phone right now. Leave a message and I'll call you back.


Don't have caller tunes blaring while the recruiter waits for you to pick-up the call.

Don't have a rude greeting. Example: This is Tom. If you think it's important, leave a message. If not, I don't plan to call you back.

Don't answer the phone in loud surroundings like at a party, bar, or basketball game. Solution: let it hit your voicemail and listen to the message. Then you can call back when you're in an uninterrupted environment.

We found a cool quiz that will test how savvy you are with cell phone etiquette. Try it out today!
