Daily Interview Tip

Here's the process you should follow to prepare for your interview: Select your interview questions and their order. Record yourself asking these questions. Get the footage onto a computer to act as a virtual interviewer. Record yourself answering the questions. Play it back and review your performance. If asked, "How well do you work under pressure or tight deadlines?", show the interviewer you thrive under pressure. Give examples of volunteer and paid work that involved pressure and deadlines. When talking about your last employer, never run down or say anything negative about anybody or anyone. The employer will feel that you will do it to them.
