Daily Interview Tip

When it comes to looking for a job, set daily, weekly or monthly goals, depending on your self-study program. A great way to learn more about a profession is to network with those in a particular career or a specific occupation. When talking about former employers, focus on positive developments that resulted from your departure, whether it was that you accepted a more challenging position or learned an important lesson that helped you to be happier in your next job.
