Maximize Your Chances of Success
Job interviews are some of the most stressful events anyone will go through. They're full of ups and downs, taking you from the depths of despair to the heights of ecstasy.

Expect to dedicate a significant amount of time to reading and online research. It's essential to keep in mind that if you're not preparing, your competitors likely are. Remember, this is a competition. Even if you perform well, if someone else excels, they may secure the job.
