Name Dropping While in an Interview

Okay, so at one time or another, we’ve all had a person we know suggest we apply for work at their place of employment. Of course, it would seem to be the best idea to mention our friend’s name while in the interview in order to ensure our position within the company. But wait! Is there another side to this viewpoint? The linked article from theladders.com explains the sometimes devastating risk you could be taken when you drop names during your interview.

The decision is ultimately yours, however, recruiters are seeing on a daily basis the impact of job seekers choosing to see the interview process from only their point of view. Make a change in your life and opt to see yourself from the employer’s point of view. You may find you like the adjustments you make to your presentation as much as the employer will.
