Daily Interview Tip

Pay attention to how the interviewer responds. Is there something in the tone of voice that feels at odd with their replies, for example? When it comes to looking for a job, ensure that your life has a variety of activities, not just job search. If asked, "What do you feel are your weaknesses?" Make sure that you never want to give any indication of any weaknesses that you have. Turn you weaknesses into strengths by working it to the employer's advantage.
