Q. When I go to an interview I often know someone who works for the company or used to work there. If they had nothing to do with me getting the interview, should I still mention their name?

A. It’s up to you. If you’re planning to mention the name of a current employee, drop them a message first and let them know you’re coming in for an interview. Maybe they didn’t get you the interview but they could still help you get the job!
