Is Work / Life Balance Really all About Simplifying? You may or may not have heard of it, the KISS principle, or in gentler terms, Keep it Simple Stupid. Simplifying our life at home and work sounds like paradise, but how many working parents actually find the time to simplify and prioritize?
Most of us are too busy. Does life at work and home seem to gel together into one?

There are specific roles of the interviewer. These roles are not super complex, actually they're quite simple. The interviewer wants to find as good a persona as possible, one that is skillful, adequate and friendly and can ultimately compliment the company in this position.
