Daily Interview Tip

At the start of the interview you should smile at and maintain good eye contact with the interviewer. Try to relax without perching on the edge of your chair, but don't slouch either. Great questions to ask the interviewer is about the size of the department/branch/section, training programs, and opportunities for advancement. Ask for more explanation if you do not understand a question. It is better to ask for clarification than to answer inappropriately.
