Daily Interview Tip

Never criticise a previous manager, colleague or employer. Aim to give the impression of a capable, team-playing professional who would fit in and not be difficult to manage. Shut the door on your troubles and avoid discussions about family or financial problems. Let the hiring manager about what you can do for them if hired. After you finish the actual interview is over, the process is not over. You must follow up with the interviewer with an thank you note.
