Getting a Job—Resumes, Networking, and Interviews
In the Jan/Feb TPG 2013, there is a great article on getting a job and how to prepare yourself in writing a resume, networking to get a job, proper way to interview, and questions you should be ready for. We have put this together as a separate document for your use. You can also use this to recruit students that are not AIPG members and to remind them that they can join for free.
