It's the little things that matter

Have you listened to your outgoing voice mail lately?

If it's funkier than, "Hello, you've reached X, leave a message," etc., then you might have a problem getting a job.

Kris Dunn, the HR Capitalist, has a great post that explains how your voice mail message makes a difference when he's recruiting:

If I am calling a candidate off a resume and get voice mail, I treat it like a freebie. Good energy and kind of dynamic sounding in your voice mail greeting? Cool, I'm more interested than I was when I called.

So check your voice mail message and change it if you need to. Your friends will forgive you for having an uncool message, and you'll get interviews and maybe even a job out of it. Not a bad deal.
