Daily Interview Tip

In an interview always introduce yourself and shake hands firmly and smile. A sincere smile in your job interview will help to put you, and the interviewer, at ease. Stand until you are invited to sit down. Take along written references for your interviewer and provide a list of people who can speak for you. It sounds obvious, but make sure your referees are primed, happy and available to be contacted
