Daily Interview Tip

Get a trusted friend to give you a critique of your entrance into a room. Do you come across as assured, arrogant or apprehensive? When given a chance to ask a question if you do not ask a question, it sends the wrong signals--that you're not really interested in the organization, don't know what's important to you in an employee/employer relationship, or lack confidence and assertiveness. Even if you didn't get the job, thank the employer or personnel manager for considering you. Be professional and polite.
