Interview Answer Tips:

Take the time to research the company and the position you are interviewing for in advance.

The more practice you have at interviewing, the more comfortable you'll be.

Interviewing can be nerve-wracking whether it's your first interview or you have interviewed many times in the past.

Give yourself plenty of time to get to the interview, take a deep breath before you go into the interview, and do your best to stay calm.

The words you use during job interviews will convey an impression of you to the hiring manager.

Using power words in your responses will help make that impression a good one.

When you're asked about why you left (or are leaving your job) try to keep it positive.

Be direct and focus your answer on the future, especially if your leaving wasn't under the best of circumstances.

Don't forget to thank the interviewer and to take the time to follow up with a personal thank you note.
