How To Get Ahead At Work
How To Get Ahead At Work

Wanna ACE your next job interview?

Avoid these hiring “deal-breakers” from Career Builder:

1.  Your online footprint is a mess.  Employers WILL Google you before you’re asked to interview.  They’ll check you out on Facebook and Twitter, and 23% will try to find your comments on sites like Glassdoor.com and Yelp.

2.  You’re not prepared at the interview.  About one third of applicants will be interviewing with a CEO or other top executive.  So prepare as though you’ll be talking to the top brass.

3.  You don’t know enough about the company.  Most applicants get eliminated because they don’t have the skills.  But another set gets knocked out because they ask for too much money, or they don’t fit with the company.

4.  You lack manners.  82% of employers want a “thank you” after the interview.  Don’t be the applicant who doesn’t send one.

If you LOVE your current job, but are looking to get ahead at the office, try these tips from Business Insider:

Wear red to show you’re focused, committed, and trustworthy.

Get to work earlier than your coworkers.

If you’re a woman, wear makeup (sounds mysoginist, but it works)

Have “executive presence,” meaning confidence, calmness under pressure, and decisiveness.

DON’T negotiate face-to-face…research shows subordinates perform better and show more skill in non-face-to-face negotiations.

Don’t help your coworkers TOO much…you might end up getting overloaded and it could damage YOUR performance.

Smile a lot.

Have SEX at least four times a week (!)  It leads to higher self-esteem and happiness, which translates to better work.

(At least if you do THAT, you won’t have to worry about smiling a lot!)
