Daily Interview Tip

Interviews in the private sector vary from the well-planned assessment day, with group tasks and a panel interview, to a more hurried, informal chat with your potential line manager. Watch out for unpredictable factors that can influence the outcome. Most job seekers talk too much and ruin a perfectly good interview answer. Take time to think before you respond, be direct and don't ramble or go off topic. If your response is good and you see positive reaction such as a nod or smile, stop answering. Many applicants ruin a perfectly good answer by continuing.
