Daily Interview Tip

Competency-based interviews are increasingly used now and many people fail to deliver at these as they require highly detailed responses. There are many people looking for work and applying for the same jobs so don't be so hard on yourself if you do not land a job right away. When talking about former employers, focus on positive developments that resulted from your departure, whether it was that you accepted a more challenging position or learned an important lesson that helped you to be happier in your next job.
