Job seekers should research and follow the companies or institutions where they want to work, recent Ball State University graduate Katherine Marie Priddy writes in this blog post. In her own job search, Priddy learned to stay in the know about target companies by following them on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. She also advises candidates to eat a banana before an interview because of its power to ease stress.
