The job market is more competitive than ever. When it's time to go beyond your LinkedIn profile, and find out if you're the right candidate, it's time to talk. From networking to phone interviews to in-person meetings, your success depends on your story. Are you able to convey your value proposition in a way that's clear, concise and compelling? Or do you sit in the interview, wide-eyed and wondering when the interrogation will end?
The job interview doesn't have to be nerve-wracking, uncomfortable or even difficult.
