Daily Interview Tip

Competency-based interviews are increasingly used now and many people fail to deliver at these as they require highly detailed responses. Do not get into salary unless you are forced to. Even then you want to leave an impression that you are flexible in this area. A handy thing to bring to your job interview is paper and a pen, so you can write down the interviewer's name, the time of any future interview, or other information you might need later.
