   There are TWO closings you must successfully complete for a job:
      1.  At the end of the Interview to become their Candidate of Choice
      2.  At the end of Negotiations to insure you, the Candidate, are hired
           (Some companies will negotiate with the top two candidates.)
   Closing the deal is often the most challenging for those who have NOT
   been in sales before, as they know if you don't ask for it, it may not come.
   Show your interest by always moving to Close your position with them as
   the Candidate of Choice and the Candidate being hired. Those who don't
   ask are often perceived to be less interested.
