Daily Interview Tip

Prepare for the interview by finding out all you can about the role, company and industry. Read about the company's history, milestones, values, products / services and customers; and research the wider challenges and opportunities in the sector. You may be able to decrease your anxiety by realizing that an interview is a meeting between two equally important parties with the goal of sharing information. The employer wants to find out if you can do the job and if you will fit into the organization. You want to find out if you should contribute your skills and knowledge to the organization, if you can learn and grow in this position, and if you will be respected and compensated for your contribution. Drive or travel the route a day or two ahead, at the same time of day as you will on the day of the interview.
