Job Prospects & HT’s Job Board

To be successful in your job/career search, it is important to do your “employer homework”. You must determine “who the employer is?”, “what the employer does?” and “how good the employer is at doing….?”

This step will allow you, the job seeker, to know what to tell the employer in a focused cover letter and during the interview, what you can do for them today.
