Good CVs are The Only Solution to Tackling Logical Questions in Interviews

Have you ever attended any interview with so much hope but eventually failing to secure that job opportunity you badly needed? How did you feel and what was your reaction? Did you think of doing anything crazy? The answer is actually a big “Yes”. We have all engaged ourselves in one or two interviews, and if you haven’t, then one of these fine days you might find yourself locked up in one especially if you have just finished college. Being sincere, the interview experience is one that always leaves you with something to remember or talk about, and in particular, if you were not well set. The nagging questions, the tension, the quietness and intimidating interviewers all guarantee you trauma and distress. Therefore, there’s no doubt that abortive job interviews always leaves us with the “Why”, the “How” and the “What” rhetoric questions that will definitely have no answers. For example, we certainly find ourselves questioning our abilities, experience and competence. Am I actually well trained and capable to deliver? Why did they single out some individuals as being unqualified? Why me? Such questions relentlessly leave you troubled and upset, and if worst comes to worst, you might end up thinking of committing suicide because of low self esteem.
