Daily Interview Tip

Practice dealing with difficult moments such as when you forget what you are saying. Think about the structure of your answer - it is normally helpful to have a clear beginning, middle and end, with the end summarising what has just gone before. To find out more about the job ask the interviewer about the person you would be working for. Their history with the employer and their background. A telephone interview is still an interview even if you don't have to go to their offices. You need to be as prepared and well presented as you would be for a face to face interview.
