For Job Candidates
Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email
Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Send me one follow up email (if I haven’t responded to your initial contact). Good manners are really important.
Things That Impress You In A Candidate: A well-turned phrase in your cover letter (even better if you can make me laugh); Attention to the detail of the position requirements (send me a matrix chart with how you meet the requirements, and I may fall in love)
Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Education and demonstration of skills.
Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Typos – if you can’t check your letter and resume for typos, you are not my kind of candidate.
Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Candidates can apply for multiple positions and not be penalized (but this typically doesn’t apply to the way I work with clients).

In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? I love being my own boss.
