I'm looking for good, practical books with advice about the process –– how to write a compelling cover letter, what to wear to an interview, etc. I'm especially interested in short, succinct books like Don't Send a Resume
I have an information interview at a large company I'd like to work for.
Some background: The interview was set up by a former colleague's friend and the person I am speaking with does not work in the department I'd like to work in.
What is the best I can hope to get out of such a situation and how would you go about achieving it?
