Daily Interview Tip

It's important to speak in specific rather than general terms and quantify your success. 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. Body language is even more important than the content of your questions. There are many studies that prove generally when talking to someone they pay a lot more attention to you visually than what you are saying.
