Daily Interview Tip

Make sure you're clear about the next steps following the interview. Many organisations take a lot longer than they say to get back to you, so it may be worth saying: "So you'll let me know by next Monday? If I don't hear by Wednesday is it ok to drop you a line?" When asked to describe a previous mistake at work, conclude on a positive note, with a concrete statement about what you learned and how it benefited the company. The great question to ask the interviewer could be when they anticipate a decision will be made and how they will inform the candidates.
