Daily Interview Tip

Inform your references promptly about any job interviews. Ask the interviewer questions about the company: direction, how the various departments function together, training opportunities, challenges the organization faces etc. Often, when it comes to the final stage of applications, it's rare you get clear-cut reasons for rejection. As such, interviewers give you bland, vaguely troubling explanations, rather than a useful breakdown of the strengths and weaknesses of your performance.
