Daily Interview Tip

Interviewing is often part of a manager's responsibilities, but they aren't always trained in techniques such as competency-based interviews, where questions about past behaviour in particular situations are used to predict how candidates would act if they were doing a particular job. The decision to hire is often made in the first thirty seconds. Make a good first impression: Practice opening a door, coming into a room, offering your hand confidently, smiling and introducing yourself. Body language is even more important than the content of your questions. There are many studies that prove generally when talking to someone they pay a lot more attention to you visually than what you are saying.
