Daily Interview Tip

An employer will often interview several qualified applicants for a job. An interview can be a simple, informal meeting between you and your potential employer. Negative body language will counteract anything you say. Exude confidence in how you walk, sit or answer questions. Be confident when answering a question about your weakness the fact that this weakness does not make you any less of a great candidate, and show that you are working on this weakness and tell the recruiter how.
