interviews. And it's 3 months? To quickly find a good job and have
choice, you must attend 2-3 interviews a day! And to get

give you a major boost and rapid growth. Council. Look for a broader look
deeper and perspectives. 13. Negative about past job

to work. 14. Parish for an interview during working hours, of course,
does it matter if you're in now. What you said
superiors about the cause of absences? Asked to go "to hospital" or other school
stupidity? Or "did not say anything, my absence no one will notice ...".
In other words, you cheated, or leader, or skips. Who needs
an employee? Tip: go for an interview after hours
or at lunchtime. So you show loyalty to the current employer
and, most likely in the future. Alternative: if the employer knows about your
upcoming retirement, agree with him and have at least verbally, but official
resolution. 15. Cheating on a resume or in interviews here
do not mean a slight exaggeration of skills or accomplishments protrusion.
