It is extremely important to know how to represent yourself when applying for a job and while many people are good about email and phone communications, they forget about modern technologies. Surviving College’s list of effective communication tips for job seekers is useful in the way it instructs potential employees on how to prepare for job interviews and to brush up on the lingo of the industry.
