Quantify your Resume Bullets and Get Hired Faster

But success at the interview table (and even at the new job later) depends on more than just the resume that you carry. Besides nonverbal cues like how we stand or how firm we shake another person’s hand, one of the biggest indicators of confidence and success is how we look.
