Daily Interview Tip

Think about how you're going to address the more tricky questions, such as, "where would you like to be in five years' time?" or "what are your weaknesses?". Write down your questions for the interviewer before the day of your interview so that you are ready. You might think that the best thing about a telephone interview is that, like a radio presenter, you don't have to worry about how you look.
