Daily Interview Tip

Don't take being passed up personally. It's tempting to put yourself centre stage, but believe me, most reasons for rejection are not about you. Work on answers to the most common interview questions. The "tell me about yourself" or "talk me through your CV" questions are normally asked to ease you in, so make sure you're ready for them. Think before you speak. Although you want to be open and honest in your interview, avoid talking about your personal or financial problems.
