- Job listings tend to draw piles of applicants, which puts you in intense competition with many others
- The job you want may not be advertised at all

The following HR professionals and recruiters from various backgrounds have volunteered their time to engage participants in live mock interviews:

- Zalika DIA / Recruiter, ETIQ International (Software Engineering)
- Cheryl JEAN-JACQUES / Director, Consulting Services, DBSoft (IT, Sales)
