The phone call Jason waited for finally came! He'd been invited for an interview for the job he'd wanted—sales manager for an educational publishing company. Suddenly his nerves were on edge.
The interviewer asks: Why has it taken you so long to find a job?
It’s difficult to believe that employers are still asking this type of question. Don’t they read the newspapers or listen to the news? If they were informed, they would know the answer; i.e. jobs are very scarce and difficult to find these days, and unemployment is still high, despite improvements in the economic picture.
