Daily Interview Tip

Rather than just saying you possess particular experience or a skill, prove it. Practise your story-telling techniques to show how you achieved a result or used your skills. When asked to describe a previous conflict, never say you had none. It can send out a signal that the you are inexperienced or that you lack the tough skin or skills to deal with confrontation. When looking for work, share your goals/ambitions with family and friends and talk about your successes.
