Daily Interview Tip

Seriously think about using a headset for telephone interviews, it will make it much easier to take notes so you'll be able to concentrate on the conversation rather than on balancing the phone between shoulder and ear while you search for a pen. Researching the employer will be a big help in formulating your answer to the question of why you want to work there. Be honest and straightforward, but do not dwell on any conflict that may have occurred when talking about your past jobs.
