It’s a small world Ever feel like you are living in a fishbowl – or under a microscope? Here is the story of Tom. He is going in for his oral interview in Berkeley, Calif. He has an education, loads of experience, and he's ready to knock 'em dead. Tom is ready!  They asked him to tell them about a stressful situation he'd been in at work and how he handled it.

One candidate emailed me the following: I didn't realize how incredibly dead in the water I was. You see, I thought my answers to the oral [...]
