Daily Interview Tip

Read carefully through the job and person specification, identifying your experiences that demonstrate the skills or knowledge gained. Again, practise articulating each one. If the job requires you to be bondable, don't lie, if you have previously been denied a bond. Tell the truth. The employer will find out one way or another and it will jeopardize your reputation for other jobs. When asked to, "Tell me about a situation where you did not get along with a co-worker or manager." Never respond by saying you get along with everyone.
