Applying for jobs can be difficult work in and of itself. For many people, the hardest part is the interview process. As confident as you may be in your resume and cover letter, winding up face to face with a single interviewer or a team of associates can be one of the most nerve-wracking moments of your life.

While some of us will luck out, whether by interviewing online at home with no pants on or skipping the interview process altogether, many of us will have one or dozens of interviews over the years. And prep as we might, there’s still enormous room for error with each meet.
