Daily Interview Tip

Not following up after an interview is the biggest mistake - follow up with a thank you note. Immediately after the interview, you may want to do a personal evaluation of how it went. Write down some of your answers to questions asked, and assess them to see if they were the best possible answers. Don't take being passed up personally. It's tempting to put yourself centre stage, but believe me, most reasons for rejection are not about you.
