Daily Interview Tip

A common reason for rejection is interview style. Interviews can make the most confident of us extremely nervous. If asked why you left your last job, avoid saying anything negative about yourself or your previous employer. Don't take being passed up personally. It's tempting to put yourself centre stage, but believe me, most reasons for rejection are not about you.
