    I know many like Info graphics vs. tips sheets that require extensive reading. As is often the case many ideas and tips are a matter of opinion although I concede that with a quick viewing I did not see too much that I disagreed with with the possible exception of elevator speeches. Evidently that is a difficult concept and I only occasionally hear one that peaks my interest. It is a topic that is often discussed and clearly needs career industry experts to develop commonly accepted guidelines including examples tied to various wok sectors

      Good point, Vicky. It’s easier to make a cheat sheet that works when there’s best practice consensus. Sometimes though, the author would do a better job to target more specifically because some practices work better in a given industry.
