Daily Interview Tip

Make sure you're clear about the next steps following the interview. Many organisations take a lot longer than they say to get back to you, so it may be worth saying: "So you'll let me know by next Monday? If I don't hear by Wednesday is it ok to drop you a line?" The interviewer wants to know if you can learn to do the job in a reasonable time and how much training you will need. Never say "no" to this question. In an interview always introduce yourself and shake hands firmly and smile.
