   Job Interview Preparation:
   What to do before, during, and after an interview  |  Ladders, Katherine Brunt       01/10/2017
    I cannot stress the importance of interview preparation too much! You only
    get one chance to prove to a potential employer why you’re the right
    candidate for the job. It’s imperative you walk into each and every interview
    with a premeditated plan for selling yourself.
    Unfortunately, too many well-qualified candidates fail to spend enough time
    preparing for interviews and subsequently lose out on good offers.

    Interview prep not your forte? Try implementing this simple 3-step job
    interview preparation plan to help you score your ideal career.
   Side note: Step 2 is to Dress for Success on the day of the Interview. This is a must but you
                     also need to insure your clothing is free of stains, wrinkles, etc. You may need to
                     have them cleaned prior to your big interview!
