10 Military Phrases That Will Get You Laughed Out of an Interview

The results of a job interview may seem to hinge on your credentials and luck, but the way you speak in an interview can have a profound impact on your success.

Beyond the requirements of the job, interviewers are looking for employees they can trust and understand.

Forbes.com writer Mindy Lockard says in her article titled, The Best Words To Use In An Interview, For Both Sides Of The Desk, “We’re expected to use our words to impress while dealing with sweaty palms and shaky knees.
