In case you didn’t notice, we’ve launched an app 🙂

It’s called myPitch.

It helps you craft an elevator pitch to impress the interviewer within the first 30 seconds.

Check out the android version here. Here’s a link to the iPhone version.

So we were very honoured to be featured on the morning of the launch by Fiona Smith from the BRW. Check her out on Twitter here fionaatwork.

We’ve been truly delighted by all the support the app has received so far, and would sincerely like to thank everyone for their support.

But back to Fiona. She  blogs on all sorts of topics around the workplace and job hunting on the BRW’s website. See her profile here.

The article covers the five trickiest interview questions.

Like these questions or loathe these questions, you need to be prepared to answer them.

The interview questions are:

(1) Tell me about yourself.
(2) Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
(3) Tell me about your strengths and weaknesses.
(4) Tell me about a time where you made a mistake.
(5) Why should we hire you?
