Daily Interview Tip

The interview is also a good time to explore other priorities you might have, such as the possibility of flexible or part-time working, or any adjustments you might need. Ask questions if you find out you did not get the job, you can ask why. "Can you tell me what would have made me a better candidate for the position?" If you were not successful in the interview, ask if the employer knows of any other job openings in your line of work.
