Can a poem help you land your next job?


    23 of the most important weird trends of 2016

    Almost everyone gets nervous before a job interview, especially if it is one you really care about.

    My mum’s advice to combat nerves is to have a shot of of liquor before you go in (sorry, Mum). Others will tell you to picture your prospective employers naked.

    None of this has ever really worked for me, but I do think it can help to make light of any stressful situation – job interviews included.

    So could the poem tactic work? Poem a job interview is a fantastic new tag sweeping Twitter. From the self-deprecating to the slightly too honest, these tweets will make you feel a little better about any past mishaps or future nerves.
