Research Tip

Don't be afraid to call up an organization and say, "I am curious about what you do and would like to learn more. Do you have any in-house publications or is there anyone who can help me? I only need a few minutes of someone's time."

Interview Tip

Remember to thank your interviewer(s). Follow up immediately afterwards with a brief thank-you note expressing your appreciation for the interview and re-stating your interest.
