5 Ways to Derail Your Interview By Rachel Farrell, Special to CareerBuilder  Find Jobs An interview is one of the hardest things to obtain as a job seeker -- and unfortunately, it's also  one of the easiest ways you can lose the job opportunity.  Interview mishaps happen to everyone, but the key to avoiding them is to relax and be yourself,  says Laura Rose, a life and business coach and owner of Rose Coaching.
