Daily Interview Tip

Any degree develops research skills, so apply them to your job hunting and don't forget the social networks that provide so much inside information. If asked if you consider yourself successful, be candid without sounding arrogant. Mention observations other people have made about your work strengths or talents. Reflect on your interview and consider what parts went well and did not, what you feel worked and what did not, what you would say or do differently the next time to help you learn from each interview.
