It doesn’t matter if it’s your first, second, or tenth job interview – it is rarely a relaxed experience. Eager to leave the best possible first impression, we often get anxious, forgetful, and unconfident. Needless to stay, this doesn’t allow us to show our best personality traits.

Long gone are the days when you could just call an employer with a nearby location and discuss all the details on the phone – including the starting date. These days, the pace of life is what some would call insane, and competition is the workforce has snowballed.
According to Glassdoor, a company can receive around 250 resumes for a corporate job vacancy on average, and a number of people invited for an interview is usually one-digit. Needless to say, only one actually gets the position they wanted.
