Daily Interview Tip

Work out where you're going, travelling times and transport options. If you can factor in more time and locate a coffee shop nearby, it may help to reduce travelling anxiety. Think before you speak. Although you want to be open and honest in your interview, avoid talking about your personal or financial problems. If you are shy, don't be ashamed of your shyness, it's part of you and depending on the job could be quite appealing. Not all roles need over-confident employees and you can still be quietly confident.
