Daily Interview Tip

At the start of the interview you should smile at and maintain good eye contact with the interviewer. Try to relax without perching on the edge of your chair, but don't slouch either. When given a chance to ask a question if you do not ask a question, it sends the wrong signals--that you're not really interested in the organization, don't know what's important to you in an employee/employer relationship, or lack confidence and assertiveness. If you have a health problem that will affect your work performance, explain your situation briefly and stress the positive points. It will be helpful to have a positive reference letter from your previous employer. This letter should explain the type of duties you did and stress that you are a steady worker who is responsible, hard-working and punctual.
