If you’re like many job seekers, job interviews can get you nervous. You want to make your best impression and give the right answers to land a job. For people with less than perfect job histories or former offenders the prospect of a job interview can be more daunting. How should you answer questions about your spotty work record? How do you handle questions that hone in on your past criminal activity?
You can overcome these obstacles by practicing answers to difficult questions and paying attention to your body language.
