Daily Interview Tip

Smile when you talk on the telephone. You'll sound more relaxed, you'll sound more confident and assertive. Be on time for your interview. Try to arrive 5 or 10 minutes early to be safe. Find out ahead of time where you're going and how long it will take to get there. You may be able to decrease your anxiety by realizing that an interview is a meeting between two equally important parties with the goal of sharing information. The employer wants to find out if you can do the job and if you will fit into the organization. You want to find out if you should contribute your skills and knowledge to the organization, if you can learn and grow in this position, and if you will be respected and compensated for your contribution.
