Daily Interview Tip

Avoid poorly-targeted and bland replies. Each organisation sees itself as unique and wishes to project its own identity, so never leave an employer feeling it is just one of many companies to which you are applying. If during your interview you've been told you'll hear by a certain day, by all means give them a call a few days later. Be specific and include examples to support your statements and try to show that you meet the employer's expectations.
