Going to a job interview can be nerve-wracking. What will they ask? How will I answer? Do I have something in my teeth? Job-Applications.com, a leading entry-level and first-time employment site, has published their entire online video library. The videos consist of people who have been successful in landing jobs and they give away their secrets. The site has select videos for certain kinds of businesses, but you can go straight to YouTube and their channel for playlists on fast food jobs, fashion retail, supermarkets, and department stores.

It might also have been forever since you’ve interviewed and you’ve forgotten some basics.
There are, of course, many job interview tip videos on YouTube, but these are specific to the kinds of jobs, and it’s important to have a distinction. And a lot of “tip” videos can get distracting with “actors” and cheesiness at times. These are real people who have been there, and their information is valuable. Give the Job Application YouTube site a look.
