What I've Learned:
1. Most people are really nice, to the point that they will go out for lunch or coffee with a total stranger who is a friend of a friend, and give out lots of insight into their field.
2. Keeping a "Job Log" has been SO helpful! It answers the burning questions like 'When did I send that resume?' and 'When was the last communication I had with that company?' and 'When did she say she'd get back to me?'
3. I'm not 19 and looking for a summer job. Job-hunting takes a long time in Grown-Up Land.....
4. "I'll get back to you by ___________" means almost nothing, even from really nice HR people.
