Interview Preparation  - 
 
When you prepare stories that demonstrate your personal qualities, you’ll be amazed at how appreciative and responsive your interviewers will become. By conveying your passion, expertise, adaptability, and “can-do, will-do” attitude, you’ll be well on your way to making your next boss say to you, “You’re hired!”

Do you really want to work for a company just because they make you an offer? Remember Groucho Marx's line, "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member." Is it really a good fit for you?
