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, this book will prepare you for the service industry interview by giving you the straight answers on what it takes to score that first job.
