I am sure most of us who are driving cars have been pulled over by the cops for a variety of reasons, most proabably for speeding. However, did you know that when a policeman asks to search your car, you could refuse? It’s a pretty intimidating situation to be sure, but you do have rights–even if the police officer implies you don’t have the legal right to refuse.Although you can refuse a car search, there are a couple of circumstances under which a police officer can legally search your car without a warrant.If you were pulled over for speeding and an officer smells marijuana, that’s got probable cause. This allows the police to search your entire car, as well as any containers and purses within the car–in other words, places where the marijuana is likely to be hidden. When an officer lawfully arrests a driver, he or she can legally search the passenger compartment of the car, including the glove compartment but not (oddly enough) the trunk.

Think before you answerIntroduction
Now that you have secured an interview, it’s up to you to convince the employer that you are the best person for the job. It’s time to sell your skills, your experience and most importantly sell yourself!

Although your technical abilities are most important, interviewers don’t only consider your qualifications and on job experience. Employers also use interviews to assess:
Your communication skills
Your ability to articulate your views
Your ability to perform under pressure
Your ability to think on your feet
Your personality

Therefore the way you answer the questions is as important as the content of the answer.
