If you are like most people, you probably don't particularly enjoy
job interviews. Unless you are ready a job interview will certainly
be among the most stressful things you'll have to do in your life.
Are there any tips that'll help? Of course there are!
The five tips below, if taken to heart and acted upon, will give you
an advantage over about 80% of all job applicants who do little or
no preparation for the same job interview. Actually that might be
