    Hello Mr. Anderson, I have a few questions to ask:

    1.) What do you believe are the top 3 characteristics of professionalism?
    2.) How would you make a lasting impression on a potential employer after an interview?
    3.) For interviews, I heard that its good to arrive earlier than your expected interview time. Would the same apply after you received the position, when you are going to work?

    Thank you!

    Hello Mr. Anderson, I have a question to ask:

    1.) Would the level of professionalism be different during a Skype interview for a job or a professional school interview?

    2.) What would be the ideal setting or location to conduct the Skype interview?

    Thank you for your time!

    Hello Mr. Anderson, I have some questions for you as well:

    1) You mentioned in your “Applying for the Job” video how it is helpful to write a letter to the interviewer after your interview. Other than thanking them and being appreciative, what other content should you include?
    2) What are some things you should and should not do when being interviewed by a potential employer?
    3) What are some things a person can do to best prepare for an interview?
    4) Should you include other documents such as a cover letter or letters of recommendation with your CV even if an employer does not ask for them?

    Thank you!

    Hello Mr. Anderson, the questions I have for you are:

    1.) Other than being diligent in your academia and extracurricular, what are some other ways to build a solid, positive reputation?
    2.) Being known for having integrity is one of the most valuable attributes one can have when it comes to reputation. What are some ways a person can resonate their integrity and make it known to others? If someone is not in a position (such as on the board of a club) to demonstrate integrity, how would someone show a potential employer that they have integrity?
    3.) You mentioned having a well-written cover letter along with a resume, what are the key elements of writing an effective and persuasive cover letter? How long should the cover letter be?

    Thank you!

    In regard to using my personal network: I were to have someone contact a potential employer on my behalf– is having more contacts better? How many contacts would be “too many”?

    Dear Mr. Anderson,

    I was wondering what were some of the obstacles you faced when starting out your business and how you overcame them. Do you have any advice to give from those experiences?
