Although he or she may present the offer in a nonchalant, casual way, your interviewer is probably giving you one last chance to prove yourself before they make a decision.

The office lunch break is often a source of contention for many. While some firms have a strict one-hour lunch policy, for others it's half an hour, and for the unlucky few, it may mean eating and working at the same time. But, even when workers do have the right to a lunch break, how long is optimum to benefit both organization and the individual worker?
Stuck in a rut with your career? It’s a common problem – many workers find themselves in a job they find unchallenging, but lack the means to climb further up the career ladder. One way to improve your job prospects is to learn a new skill. Most people have busy lives outside of work, and don’t necessarily have spare time to devote to learning. However, there is an untapped source of free time in the working day – the lunch break. The most successful business people use their breaks for self-improvement. An hour might not sound much, but if you study a new skill for an hour every day, the time soon adds up into something significant.
