Be Professional Always

Don't forget to create a new professional greeting on your personal voice mail when job searching. Potential employers and contacts are going to be calling you - you want to make sure that when they listen to your voice mail you sound like someone they want to hire or help. Yes, this does mean that you are going to have to take your child's voice mail message off your answering machine and remove the loud music playing in the background.

You want this message to sound like it's a professional person, ready and willing to come to work and get the job done.
