Interviewing can be, for some, the hardest part of landing a job. The pressure to have the perfect answers, send the right message, and be everything that an employer is looking for can be overwhelming!
And the after-interview wait can be just as tough.
Unfortunately it can be very difficult to get feedback on our interview skills. Dearring managers don’t often have the time to help you get better.
