One Thing You Really Need to Do to Get the Job You Want

In my course, How to Get a Super Fantastic Job, I recommend going on as many interviews as possible, even if it is not quite the job you want.

Don't set up interviews with employers where you really want the job until you have had several "practice" interviews.

This is an email I just received from a person who took the course:
I just got back a few hours ago from my first of a 3 part interview with  xxxxxx.  It went extremely well, Assuming I'll pass the background check, and how can I not, I've already been invited for the 2nd interview.  This interview went so well that it took 2 hours instead of what was supposed to be 30 minutes and turned more into a job training session than an interview.  It was fun and I learned a lot.

Your advice on getting practice interviews really paid off.  I've never had to interview for a company before, I always knew my employers prior.  Last week I went on two interviews I knew I didn't want, and though they were not the same type of caliber interview, it really helped me work out the kinks. If I had gone in there cold no telling what would have happened.  But the practice interviews, even though one of them really was a throw away company (let me tell you) really helped me prepare.
