Daily Interview Tip

Do not dwell on personal issues. State your best qualifications for the job. Work on answers to the most common interview questions. The "tell me about yourself" or "talk me through your CV" questions are normally asked to ease you in, so make sure you're ready for them. If the job requires you to be bondable, don't lie, if you have previously been denied a bond. Tell the truth. The employer will find out one way or another and it will jeopardize your reputation for other jobs.
