Daily Interview Tip

If it's your potential line manager interviewing you, ask about their preferred management and communication styles. How do they like to see things done? Informational interviews allow you to find out facts about earnings, work conditions and opportunities. Proper hygiene and a tidy appearance are important in your interview.
