Daily Interview Tip

Have examples to speak to your achievements during your internew. Preparing your examples beforehand means you're less likely to get stuck for an answer or appear tongue-tied. The interviewer may think you are over-qualified and want this job only until something better comes along. Stress that no job is ever boring because you always learn new skills. Mention how you would benefit by working for the company and vice versa. Ask for more explanation if you do not understand a question. It is better to ask for clarification than to answer inappropriately.
