Going on a job interview is an extremely difficult process that requires preparation, practice and skill. Three ways in which I can be better prepared for a job interview is by first researching the company's profile and background. Conducting the interview with this in mind will make me seem like a good long-term investment. Also, I’ll be ready to talk in depth about the industry, the organization, and the position I am applying for. The second way I can help myself be prepared is by practicing the job interview with a peer. Not only will this give me a way to structure my preparation, but it will also help me get comfortable with giving answers, telling anecdotes, and using appropriate terminology. The last way that would help me prepare for a job interview is by coming up with questions of my own to ask the interviewer because at the end of the interview I’ll be asked what questions I have. Good questions at this stage are clarifying questions about the role itself and open-ended questions about the office culture.

Finding a Job is not Easy
I’ve known people who feel so much shame about themselves that they never allow themselves to feel good about themselves. They never take pride in things they do, and they generally talk down about themselves. If someone compliments them, they have a hard time accepting the compliment.

based my decision largely upon an academic article “Is Internet Job Search Still Ineffective” by Peter Kuhn and Hani Mansour (2011) published by Germany’s Institute for the Study of Labor.

The article states that there is a significant increase in using the Internet for job search activities with people who have the Internet at home.…

The problem with unemployment is that it is leading many people to be homeless and stuck on the streets. It is hurting the younger kids that have nothing because their parents can’t keep their jobs.

Unemployment is a very bad thing and it’s not the answer for anyone especially if you have a big growing family…
