I've failed several important job interviews in my life.
(At least, they were very important to me at the time.)
The ones that hurt the most were the ones where I looked back over the coming days, weeks and months and felt the piercing sting of regret.
Today, I want to share a highly effective strategy for advancing your career.
One that's overlooked by many.

Does this make sense? Is it something you should try also?
Well, here's my advice:
Every now and again, I like to read Quora. It's a social network where people ask questions, and others answer them -- it's a great place to learn new and interesting "random" things you wouldn't ever think of asking.
Anyway, someone asked the question:
"What is the single, most revealing interview question?"
A mistake I see with a lot of folks who read these Daily Success Boost emails and reply to me with their stories is that they treat rejection like it's "failure".
Let me tell you what failure is:
I’ve heard a number of people ask, “How do I stand out in the job interview?”
Today, I want to share with you six powerful ways.
Be warned. These methods aren’t a free lunch. To be exceptional during the interview, you have to do extra preparation before your interview.
Here’s a great question from a Daily Success Boost reader:
My biggest challenge when it comes to handling interviews is trying to sound confident in answering some of the weird interview questions that the interviewer may ask.
I know my worth and what I can bring to the table, but I guess I'm not very good at bragging on myself, as I've always been taught to show humility in everything I do.
