1. Dressing For Success For the Job Interview – []

What you wear to an interview is largely based on the position, the company’s preference, and your wardrobe.

Dressing too casually can give the impression of laziness and that you really do not want the job.

2. Top 10 Reasons to Have an Online Resume – []

Cost – The cost of postage keeps rising, and multiply that cost by the number of Cover Letters and Resumes you send out – it really adds up.

3. Lying on Resumes … Topic Never Gets Old – [Your Best Impression]
