Blog

I hope you all had some time to relax and enjoy yourselves and are back refreshed.

Holidays seem to pass so quickly. There is never enough time to do all the things you plan. My plan for these holidays was to have no plan just take it all as it comes, it worked.

Updates

I will be writing a monthly blog on topics that will provide tips for candidates preparing for job interviews. To make these blogs of real value please let me know if there are topics that are of importance to you. Take a couple of minutes to think  about what topics would be of value. You can do your thinking while in the shower, cooking, doing dishes, exercising or even sitting on the toilet. I don't mind, just email me your thoughts on deborah@impressiveinterviews.com.au
