Career Corner with Liam Horan

Topics today:

Q: I have an interview coming up this Friday. I am afraid that I have done too much research. It’s a very high profile company so I don’t want to make a fool of myself. Any tips on how I should approach the final few days so that I can give a good account of myself? (KK, email) 

Q: I’m just out of college and want to know how I can use LinkedIn more effectively to enhance my career. I’m told it’s very important but I don’t really know what do. Any tips? (DR, email).
