When I was a recruiter, I received a wide variety of questions. Below are the top 4: 

  1. What is the one accomplishment you’d like to see from me in the first 90 days? Most interviewees ask questions like, “What is an average day like?” Instead, ask questions that will reveal

Great question. As you probably already know, the real estate on your resume is incredibly important. For the sake of space and simplicity, I suggest taking the route of listing the starting month and year with the final ending month and year.

Hi there!

If you are fulfilling your current internship until your agreed-upon end date, no, you do not need to tell your boss. However, it is okay to mention it and it's always good to ask if they are willing to write you a letter of recomendation and/or endorse you on LinkedIn. This will come in h

This will depend on the company and what part of the year you were hired. A great time to ask about a performance/financial review is during the negotiation process.
