Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

First and foremost, we all know that the start of getting your foot in the door is a well put together cover letter accompanied by your well put together resume. The Next important thing is how you react to the interviewer themselves, always make sure you act appropriately to their behavior and demeanor. Now comes the little tips that many interviewers look for during interviews.

  • The most obvious one…always dress the part, such as if your going to a business company always wear a suit, if your male make sure you wear a tie even in warm weather.
  • Don’t go in there like gang busters talking about your life history. While it may be very interesting or even heart warming, they still don’t really want to hear it on the interview.
  • Do your research. Some people find being Googled creepy. But if you do it carefully, you can show the hiring manager that you took the time to learn something about them.
  • Answer the question that you are prepared for, you have come up with a great answer for and maybe they didn’t even ask. You can always work into the conversation or part of an answer to another question.
