With all the free career advice available online today, it's easy to search "interview tips" and get a ton of information. There's really no excuse for going to an interview unprepared any more. That being said, I'm still seeing plenty of people fail to prepare thoroughly for an interview. What a waste of an opportunity. With studies showing you have just a 3% chance of getting a call for an interview, wouldn't you want to increase the likelihood you succeed in the interview so you can get the job offer?
