Daily Interview Tip

At the start of the interview you should smile at and maintain good eye contact with the interviewer. Try to relax without perching on the edge of your chair, but don't slouch either. Practice a few role plays that relate to communication or customer service. This technique is used often today so demonstrate your ability to communicate information clearly and concisely. If your response is good and you see positive reaction such as a nod or smile, stop answering. Many applicants ruin a perfectly good answer by continuing.
