Daily Interview Tip

Any degree develops research skills, so apply them to your job hunting and don't forget the social networks that provide so much inside information. If there was more than one interviewer, tailor notes to the priorities of each interviewer. You may be able to decrease your anxiety by realizing that an interview is a meeting between two equally important parties with the goal of sharing information. The employer wants to find out if you can do the job and if you will fit into the organization. You want to find out if you should contribute your skills and knowledge to the organization, if you can learn and grow in this position, and if you will be respected and compensated for your contribution.
