Interviews are considered the most useful tool for evaluating applicants; your resume and cover letter are the preliminary tools to get you to this

are able to confirm with you, personally, that your resume does in fact match up with what you say you can do.

difficult interview questions will help you feel more relaxed during the interview, more confident in your answers, and can help you land the job. The
