Have you ever been in the middle of an interview and silently wondered how things were going? Wondered if you were still being considered for the job ...or if you had already blown it? How would you feel if you knew that decision was made in the first few minutes?

A new epidemic is affecting teens across the nation in their ability to get the necessary job experience to carry them throughout their careers. Recent studies have shown that teen unemployment is rising due to increased competition from older people and immigrants due to their maturity, work ethic, and being easier to work with.

Leave Your Nose Ring at Home is based on 20 years of bizarre, unusual, and absolutely crazy interviews that the author has encountered with young people. Written in a witty, irreverent style, the book will prepare you for the service industry interview by giving you the straight answers on what it takes to score that first job. If you are striking out and not being hired, this book will have you on the payroll in no time.

The majority of service industry jobs are filled by students, moonlighters, housewives, retirees, immigrants, and those hanging around until they can get what they would call a "real job." It is a high turnover industry guaranteeing regular job openings and easy entry.

Several of the first impression tips you'll learn includes:

How to win the job in the first few minutes How to make yourself irresistible to any hiring manager How to make the leap from seasonal to permanent Why a resume can be the kiss of death How to double your chances to get the job

Leave Your Nose Ring at Home is a must-read for anyone wanting to get to the top of the applicant food chain within minutes.
