Daily Interview Tip

When looking for a job expect plateaus, ups and down, since no one's learning ability or motivation remains at one level all the time. It's potentially risky, but you can also ask a question near the end of the interview to show your motivation to do well in the role. For example, "I'm really interested in this position. Do you have any doubts about my suitability?" This gives you a chance to discuss any unanswered concerns there and then. Bring your own resume with you (and make sure you remember what you wrote!) and a couple references who have given you their permission.
