We recently solicited readers to submit their most pressing career-related questions.
With help from Lynn Taylor, a national workplace expert and the author of "Tame Your Terrible Office Tyrant: How to Manage Childish Boss Behavior and Thrive in Your Job," we've answered the following: "What should you do if you realize a job interview is going downhill?"
"This is every job candidate's worst nightmare," says Taylor. "It's a great question, because the interview process is not just about how well you respond to questions. It also about how you regain traction after challenges."
Maybe things are going south because the interviewer is asking really tough questions to see how you perform under pressure. Or, perhaps you're having trouble articulating your thoughts, or there's just no chemistry between you and the hiring manager. Whatever the culprit, you never want to find yourself in this situation.
But if you do, here are some tips for getting your job interview back on track:
