Being organized and prepared for your interview will help you be relaxed and will make the entire interview process flow smoothly.

Having worked in the staffing industry since the late 80’s I have built up a nice network of candidates, hiring managers, recruiters and human resource professionals.  Recently an I.T.  professional that I worked with back in the late 80’s contacted me to ask for some assistance with his job search.  I was surprised to learn that he was still working for the same employer, a large auto company in Southern California.
