Daily Interview Tip

At the end of the interview you'll probably be asked if you have any questions and this is another chance to show what you know. Don't complain about your previous boss, avoid confrontation and be pleasant without being obsequious. Ask about the working culture to reinforce the impression you'd slot in easily. Don't linger after your interview. Say thank you, restate your interest in working with them, and leave. Acknowledge reception on the way out.
