Summer has traditionally not been the best time to be job hunting in industries where project budgets begin and end on the calendar year, but I these days there probably are no discernable rules. A lot of advice has been written regarding what to do and what not to do during job hunting and during the first months of employment. As with technology, the list of do's and don'ts regarding all aspects of a career change over time. Workers today need to know about how to exploit and/or avoid social media, how to handle interviews within the constraints of legal guidelines, how to handle co-workers with special needs, etc., that formerly might have earned you mere boor status but now might land you in serious trouble. The thumbnail image of the guy with his hands over his mouth came from an article titled, "How to Recover from a Job Interview Stumble," by Caroline Zaayer Kaufman - I think it's hilarious!
