Interview Nightmares & How to Avoid Them!

Fellow career blogger, Amy Levin-Epstein over at CBS Moneywatch’s On the Job blew my mind recently when I read nine horrifying stories of terrible interviews. You know, the kind that haunt you forever! We then did a Career Bar & Grill poll to see which readers had their own interview nightmare experiences – turns out many of you have been traumatized by interviews gone wrong. That’s why you need to watch last week’s episode [above] of "Career Reality TV." You'll learn from other people's mistakes and get advice on how to stand out (in a good way) on your next interview!

These aren’t your typical pieces of advice, Amy found new tips that can set you apart from the competition!
