I can still remember my first phone interview for a job. I had no idea what to expect so really wasn’t looking forward to it, but it can’t have gone too badly because I got the job. Now that I’ve been lucky enough to progress in my career to positions where I’m conducting the other side of the phone interview I’ve been quite surprised how little it takes to stand out from the crowd: 1. . . .
Sometimes, no matter how much you prepare, you’re just going to have a bad interview! I just wish someone had given me that nugget of advice when I was starting out. If you’re into fitness, as you’re probably painfully aware, some days you can be really looking forward to a run/swim/workout. But when you start you just can’t get into it! In these situations, people generally have no problem classing it as an off day . . .
