1 Interview Preparation
You already know that you should be dressed to impress, but did you know you should do research about the company beforehand? The more you know about them, the more impressive you'll look.
2 Interview Blunders
Don't make these common mistakes during your interview. If you talk badly about your old boss or walk into the room with gum in your mouth, you'll look too unprofessional to hire.
3 Nonverbal Mistakes
You can make plenty of mistakes at a job interview that don't involve speaking. Don't forget to make eye contact or to smile, because employers care about that sort of thing.
4 Interview Etiquette
Make sure you show up to your interview on time with your cell phone on silent. You should also make sure you give a firm handshake and keep your back straight.
5 Crucial Tips
It's important that you're dressed the right way, use the right words, and use the right quality of voice. Don't forget about the small things!
6 Top Tips
When you're asked about yourself, give them a one-minute summary of the jobs you've had. Make sure you have good posture the entire time!

Even though you want to make a lot of money, try not to talk about the pay. Steer clear of cliches, as well.

Your interview might not be what you expect. You might be interviewed by someone bored, intimidating, or uninformed. You'll just have to wing it.
14 Steps to Landing a Job
Don't forget about the importance of LinkedIn. It can really help you learn more about a company and search for connections.
15 How to Get a Great Job
Don't stick to browsing through job search websites. Why? Because 99 percent of jobs aren't actually advertised. You need to find them yourself.
