Daily Interview Tip

Use a 'CAR' story-telling format (describing the challenge, your action and the result) and provide figures proving the impact you've made in similar situations. Weave in four or five of these relevant stories during the interview. All employers want to hire someone who is not often absent from work. If asked about health or attendance, let the interviewer know that you do not have any health issues which will cause you to take a lot of sick days. You do not have to go into your health history for the interviewer. Be honest and straightforward, but do not dwell on any conflict that may have occurred when talking about your past jobs.
