Daily Interview Tip

Be polite and be yourself. Whether you can do that through your clothes, small-talk or what you say, showing your character is an important part of the interview process. The interviewer is not looking for perfection when he or she asks you about previous mistakes at work. He or she is trying better to understand your level of responsibility, your decision-making process, and your ability to recover from a mistake, as well as what you learned from the experience and if you can take responsibility for your mistakes. If your response is good and you see positive reaction such as a nod or smile, stop answering. Many applicants ruin a perfectly good answer by continuing.
