Daily Interview Tip

Facing an interview can rattle even the most confident people. Before the interview put together the things you'll need for the day. When looking for work, share your goals/ambitions with family and friends and talk about your successes. The best person doesn't always get the job. Some candidates are better at presenting themselves, while interviewers are also prone to making errors of judgement.
