In an interview, there are always two kinds of people; prepared and unprepared. Most of us feel nervous while on our way to a job interview because we are unprepared. Most of us think that there is no need to prepare for an interview. You’ll walk through the door, scramble your way through the questions asked with a lot of Oohh’s & Aahh’s and walk back with a job. Seriously, that’s never going to happen in today’s job market and you can print that.
In today’s ever so changing job market good employment opportunities are hard to come by and when they do, you need to make sure that you are well prepared to make the most of it.

People hardly spend any time to explore one’s own preferences and strengths.
