Like most people, I am not a fan of job interviews. They have the potential to be awkward, nerve-wracking and just plain filled with too much pressure.

A book about job searching you will actually want to read:

This is by far, one of the best books I’ve ever purchased. It’s easy to read, easy to follow and actually makes sense. This review basically sums it up: “Ellen Reeves has entered the depths of young job-seekers’ minds, answering the questions most are afraid to put into words.” Click here to find this book on Amazon.
