LinkedIn not available in Russia. (It’s servers are not located within the country.)

The Resume (CV): This is a listing of your work, education and other experiences. We don’t use the term CV; that’s used in Europe.

The Interview:

What is your greatest weakness?

What is your greatest strength?

What motivates you?

Tell me about a time that you failed.

Why do you want to work here?

How many couches are there in America? (What? Seriously. But you still have to answer it.)
