Daily Interview Tip

Interviews in the private sector vary from the well-planned assessment day, with group tasks and a panel interview, to a more hurried, informal chat with your potential line manager. Watch out for unpredictable factors that can influence the outcome. Answer the question that's been asked, you don't have to give all the answers you've practiced. No two jobs are alike and you never do exactly the same work. In all jobs, new skills, rules and details have to be learned.
