Heres a few things Norfolk Southern really liked on my resume/application, this was only my second interview with them and after Tuesday i will probably be workin for the Thoroughbred of Transportation starting next year as a Conductor at only 18 and right outta high school this year probably makin more money than 3/4 of my graduating class starting in 2009. Don't let all the old guys get to you at the interview tellin you your too young and they won't hire you, there was just me another kid probably 18-19 years of age at the interview, every1 else was at least probably 27+, guess what me an the other kid did good on the 2 test an we were both invited to stay for interviews, if you don't do good on the timed test your basically finished but its not hard, i screwed up my first time cause i was nervous but the 2nd time i was ready an i aced it, out of 13 people allowed to stay me an him were the youngest, the rest being right around 30, all the old guys were wrong and they were the 1s asked to leave, they like young over old so they can get as many years as possible outta of you before you retire. If you get invited to an interview, dress nice, hair gell, dress shirt, pants, shoes and a tie, no scrappy facial hair if u have any yet, clean it up nice or shave it all off, preach safety and they'll love you, answer all questions honestly, if your right outta school they'll ask alot about school and be prepared to answer each question, ask them questions so they know your as interested as they are, research the company website and remember some good things you found an bring it up at the interview, that shows that you've done some research and they will notice it , tell them how you want to advance career wise with their company, i told them i wanted to become an engineer and do some stuff that will make your application/resume look better than every1 elses, scouting, fire dept, vo tech, get into something you can earn training certificates like i did with the fire dept, they were really pleased with my EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) an haz-mat training (hazardous materials) and they really appreciated my eagle scout and scouting career too, we had a lengthy conversation about scouting, the fire dept, school and whatever job expierience i put down. Also for the people who read the online applications an resumes, make the human resources people notice yours over everyone elses by braggin about good stuff you've achieved. If you want to work for a class 1, try some of my hints an tips at the interview that helped me possibly land a super sweet job right out of high school with 1 of the safest an hardest companies to get into.
