What do You Think They Think You're Thinking?

Wouldn't it be great if you could read people's minds, especially as you're job-hunting? That way, you'd know how to pitch your cover-letter, answer the interview questions, and get the best possible job.

Well--maybe there would be a few glitches--that seems to be the ongoing premise in Jim Carrey-genre movies, anyway.

But it is still worth trying to psych out the folks sitting on the other end of your job application. Here's a trio of links that will help you understand, if not actually know for sure, what's on employers' minds. Specifically:
  1. What do employers think happens on LinkedIn--and how do job-hunters actually behave?
  2. What are the myths and misconceptions about millenials--stuff that's wrong, but  you'll have to work hard to counteract it anyway, because the generation doing the hiring doesn't understand you?
  3. What the heck did the interviewer ask me that for?
