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. Avoid mentioning inactive and non-creative activities such as watching television. Drive or travel the route a day or two ahead, at the same time of day as you will on the day of the interview.
