More than 2.5 million students apply for college annually but only about
1.7 million actually become enrolled, according to stats. Getting
accepted into college, especially the highest ranked schools, is no easy feat. It takes some planning on the part of students and parents.
You've been on your job for a while, in the industry since graduating
college. Maybe you've gone as far as you can go in your position. So
it's only natural that you might reach a point in your career where you're
stuck--a career plateau, so to speak.
According to CNN, 2013 ended with the weakest job growth since January
2011. With a job market that is still struggling to recover from the
turmoil of the past decade, many hopeful job-seekers are applying to
multiple jobs daily. And only a fraction of the jobs that they
have applied for actually respond and even less result in an interview. Although the most common mistakes in an interview are a result of
thoughtlessness, they can be avoided with some minor preparation.
