We’ve all been asked the same “How would you”, “Tell me about …” questions in job interviews. So with my stepson job-hunting, we’ve been talking a lot about interviews. Then I got thinking about a technique we sometimes use in business strategy sessions that also relates to the movie industry. Here are some movies with great lines to impress your prospective employer.

“It’s what you do right now that makes a difference.”
