Daily Interview Tip

Don't complain about your previous boss, avoid confrontation and be pleasant without being obsequious. Ask about the working culture to reinforce the impression you'd slot in easily. Practicing your introductions will help you feel less nervous. Use your left hand for carrying, leaving your right hand free for the handshake. Prepare for the interview by finding out all you can about the role, company and industry. Read about the company's history, milestones, values, products / services and customers; and research the wider challenges and opportunities in the sector.
