Power and influence are commonly associated with political circles but in simple terms it means practicing authority and control on a subject. Did you know that this is a very important aspect of an interview? If you have been a keen follower of our articles, then by now you know that you can influence the outcome of an interview. If you really want a job and you have all the tenets that are required to nail the interview, then the ball is in your court.
