Runt’s Guide To Acing Any Job Interview

Job Interview

Competition in the workforce is tough these days. What with the Obama Worldwide Recession, skyrocketing cost of living, delayed retirement, increased college graduation rates, and that thing that happened during spring break you swore you’d never talk about again, you have to make sure you stand out from the crowd. You’ve gone over your resume with a fine-toothed comb, written the perfect cover letter, and called your well connected uncle to put in a good word for you. All that’s left is the interview, and Runt is here to show you how to do it.

Show the right amount of skin: all of it

Bare It All

You want to make it clear to your potential future employer that you have no secrets, and no boundaries.
