Daily Interview Tip

An interview can feel like being interrogated under a spotlight and the slightest miscommunication or, worse, the mood of the interviewer, can jeopardise your chances. Do not get into salary unless you are forced to. Even then you want to leave an impression that you are flexible in this area. If asked why you left your last job, avoid saying anything negative about yourself or your previous employer.
