Human resources is absolutely the last place you want to send your resume.

By the time the human resources department finds out about a job opening, the person doing the hiring has already found the person he wants to hire.

People riddle their resumes with useless pieces of information. They don't tell you how the movie was made or show all the boring scenes, they give you the highlights.

So many people out there have no idea what they want to do for a living, but they think that by going on job interviews they'll magically figure it out. If you're not sure, that message comes out loud and clear in the interview.

You may even be able to convince them to create a position for you.

People talk way too much. The best interviews are the ones where the interviewer is doing a lot of the talking.
