 UNEMPLOYED IN COMPETITIVE 1992 JOB MARKET?
 'JOB TALK' PROVIDES EXPERT ADVICE AND INTERVIEWING TECHNIQUES
 NEW YORK, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- With unemployment statistics at a 10-year high, some concrete help is now available to those who finally have an interview and want to increase their chances of landing a job. Though this 1-900 service cannot promise an applicant will secure a position, it can certainly help educate callers about interviewing techniques and improve their chances of getting hired.
 Job Talk(TM) uses an interactive menu with five selections. Crucial topics include: "The 23 Worst Interview Mistakes," "11 'Heart-Stoppers'; Questions Most Frequently Asked By Interviewers," "Get Prepared: Tips On What You Can Do Before The Interview," "The Do's and Don'ts of Questions To Ask Your Interviewer," and "The Follow Up To The Interview." Each selection on the menu also has a subdirectory of numbered information and a fast forward option that allows callers to move quickly through the audio-text.
 Job Talk audio-text service was created by Linda Johnson, a 14-year veteran in the personnel placement industry. Johnson created the service to help prospective employees gain the skills they need to interview well. "Frequently the most qualified candidate doesn't land the job solely because of their interviewing techniques," says Johnson. "Interviewing is a skill which can be learned. How your interview affects not only obtaining a new job, but future promotions and raises. Why spend the time at a library doing research or money on buying an interview book, when all you have to do is call?"
 The call to 1-900-U-WORK92 (1-900-896-7592) is only $1.95 for the first minute and $.95 each additional minute. This national cost is a tax-deductible expense as permitted by law.
