Some of us have just graduated, some have been working odd jobs here and there, others are just finishing off school and are thinking about what to study at university – and all of us are thinking of ways to secure a good job in this recession-ridden world that we currently live in.

Now, we so want to know what they think, don’t we? Some finally confess:
Infographic 7: When You Bag That Interview…
And then there comes that dreaded interview, but it’s a good thing; it means you’ve been doing a good job of your life so far… so what next?
