Daily Interview Tip

Look directly at the interviewer, elaborate briefly on your experience, your skills, and background. Be sincere and sell yourself without bragging. Prepare for your interview by making a list of your accomplishments or achievements to reference during the interview. Make sure you have the interviewer's email details so that after the interview ends you can write them a thank you note, so as to reiterate your interest in the role and outline key points discussed and what you think you bring to the table.
