These situations can drive you nuts, depress you and make you think you will never get past the nightmare of interviews and waiting to hear the phone ring. It is a nerve-wracking process, but does it have to be?
The job interview questions and answers sometimes make you feel like a police interrogation is taking place and you know you haven’t done anything wrong, but it makes you feel like maybe you did.
The job interview questions & answers are throwing you for a loop.
You are going over your whole life every time a question is asked.

Did I smile or frown?
Is my hair Okay?
Did I answer quickly enough?
Did I give enough information or too much?
There is a way out of the never ending loop of anxiety and unknowing!
Simple strategies to help you nail that next job interview!
Hi, my name is Cecil Ming. I have been a counselor for over 30 years. I want to tell you a story about how I found the most comprehensive information for job seeking success.
A few months ago I started researching the subject of job interviews and the questions and answers that would be of use. In my 30 years of counseling, I had run across many clients that were tearing their hair out over the job search process. Being in the business of helping, I wanted to see what was available on the subject and possibly write a book. In doing the research I found plenty of information, but not a complete picture. I searched over 50 sites that offered information on job interview questions & answers, some of which was free info while others only presented a sales page.
I searched further and actually started buying the available products. Wow, that can get expensive! However, it is part of a thorough research project, and I wanted to know what was in these different programs.
Finding the answers is important to me. In my 30 years of counseling, I have found that the anxiety and angst that people went through while looking for work actually kept them from doing their best while applying for a job. It affected every part of their life. Many had their relationships suffer because of the stress of going through the job search, then the interview and all the unknowns involved. I could help them to handle it temporarily, but what was it that would handle it so that they never needed to come back to me to handle it again?
