    Dina's Bio:
    Whether I am helping a student take the next step after college, facilitating a career workshop or organizing group runs through the trails over the noon hour, I am always working, playing and living well in the great north woods. I came to Duluth and St. Scholastica four years ago. I adore the big city life and still love playing in it, but most of the time I am enjoying the woods and all the beautiful things northern Minnesota has to offer. Connect with me on LinkedIn and follow me on Twitter and Pinterest.

Impressing employers with coffee and donuts.

While we have been very busy promoting the more traditional ways of networking the past month, it would behoove us to tout the unconventional ways as well.

“An applicant walked in with coffee and donuts, and her resume underneath.” Hmmm.

OfficeTeam asked myriad Human Resources managers  to recount the most impressive action they have seen or heard an individual take to try to land a position. Check out the additional 8 creative ways here.

Participating in job fairs and networking is extremely valuable. However, coupling those with more unconventional ways is truly the key to landing a good job after college. Last week Forbes shared at least 10 tips for embracing the more nontraditional ways of job searching and networking.

I don’t think I’d bring a basket of scones to my next interview, but these are a few from this list that I would embrace for sure:

Be vulnerable. Learn how to listen. Build a relationship with the administrative assistant.

P.S. Our Saints really rocked the job fairs this year. We represented well. Woo hoo!
