Interview Mastery is unique among online resources in its focus on helping you excel during job interviews. In my experience as a career counselor, I can honestly say this service offers some of the best guidance you'll find on answering the most difficult job interview questions, handling behavioral-event interview questions (like those commonly asked during UK interviews!!), addressing tough questions (on salary, for example), and much more. When you consider how important the interview is to securing a job, isn't it worth 20-30 minutes of your time to check out this free service paid on your behalf by UK? A six-month subscription, normally $30, is yours for free.
