Recent graduates should treat a job search like a date, by dressing well and trying to be memorable, talent acquisition specialist Dominic Bokich writes in this blog post. They should approach hiring managers like they are highly selective supermodels, Bokich advises, and give them a gift in the form of a portfolio that includes a resume, cover letter, recommendations and a sample project. "When a hiring manager receives a portfolio, they spend one or two minutes looking through it. If all they receive is a resume, they spend on average only eight to 30 seconds reviewing it," Bokich notes.
