Daily Interview Tip

Get a trusted friend to give you a critique of your entrance into a room. Do you come across as assured, arrogant or apprehensive? Be calm and poised and aware of your nervous habits, and try to keep them under control. A handy thing to bring to your job interview is paper and a pen, so you can write down the interviewer's name, the time of any future interview, or other information you might need later.
