Daily Interview Tip

When you've been invited for an interview, your thoughts naturally turn to giving a winning performance on the day. A bit like exams, interviews can creep up on you, but good preparation is the key to success. Hiring managers will sub-consciously let you know if you are on the right track. Watch the interviewer's body language and expressions for feedback on how you're doing. When you are contacted to schedule an interview, you can ask if there will be a test as part of the interview process. You can also ask how many people will be at the interview.
