It’s that time of year again. If you’re not graduating and looking for your first full-time job, you’re on the tumultuous search for a summer internship or part time job. One of the most stressful parts of finding a job is the interview. Whether you’re a seasoned pro at the interview process, or have only ever been on a few interviews, you’ve probably experienced that awful interview that just totally failed. It probably went something like this:

You did it! You got the interview for your first choice job.

You scrounge together whatever you can find, and think you look pretty great.

Before you leave, your best friend makes you realize that you overdid it on the cologne, perfume, and hair product.

Confidence dwindling… “Why do you think you would be a great fit for this job?”

Your answers make less sense with every question the interviewer asks.
“Who inspires you the most?”
