Let Your Fingers do the Walking
- Make a list of important names and phone numbers and keep it handy (in your notebook, wallet and by the phone).
- Try making phone calls and get as much information as you can before you visit the office /agency. This will save you time, because you'll be better prepared when you do see someone.
- Write down all your questions and concerns ahead of time so that you don't forget anything during a meeting or phone call. Review the list right before you talk to the person.
