Daily Interview Tip

Write down the questions you expect to be asked and then an effective answer for each. Be calm and poised and aware of your nervous habits, and try to keep them under control. Do not dwell on your personal history during a job interview--that is not why you are there. Start with your most recent employment and explain why you are well qualified for the position. The key to all successful interviewing is to match your qualification to what the interviewer is looking for. You want to be selling what the buyer is buying.
