KEYS TO SUCCESSFUL INTERVIEWS!

It would be great if interviews always went swimmingly well. But unfortunately, many of them are not successful. Often interviewees commit avoidable errors.  Nobody can coach job seekers for every contingency and once “in the ring” you are on your own. But there are common pitfalls in all interviews and the smart interviewee prepares to avoid them. To have greater numbers of successful interviews and receive more and better job offers, become thoroughly versed with avoiding the pitfalls you must prepare in depth.
