Job Hunting in a Recession

Years ago, during the recession in the 80's, I worked as a recruiter. This article from the Wall Street Journal is an excellent piece on recession proofing your job search:
The Interview That'll Bag a Job
At an interview, you want to stand out for the right reasons. To do so, you'll need to leave your baggage and anxiety at the door. For starters, wait until 10 minutes before your scheduled interview time to announce yourself. Arriving any sooner "shows that you're not respectful of the time the hiring manager put aside for you," says Ms. Loubaton, adding that a candidate who arrived an hour early made workers uncomfortable. "Companies really don't want someone camped out in their lobby."
