by Amanda Guralski - Apr, 2010
Nothing is more important than the impression you give in a face-to-face interview. Recruiters and Hiring Managers can learn a lot about a candidate over the phone, but it is the face-to-face interview that will make or break your opportunity to receive an offer from the company you are interviewing with. We are in a new wave of interviewing. Ten years ago we would not have imagined substituting an in person interview with loo...
