Daily Interview Tip

A great way to research the job is to scour industry blogs, trade publications, the company website or LinkedIn page; set up Google alerts for news and use Twitter to find information. When talking about your last employer, never run down or say anything negative about anybody or anyone. The employer will feel that you will do it to them. Bring your own resume with you (and make sure you remember what you wrote!) and a couple references who have given you their permission.
