Getting organised is easier said than done. It seems like we spend our days emailing various people about a number of different tasks, dates and important deadlines.

So you make it to the end of a job interview, and you think the whole thing has gone rather well. In fact, it has gone swimmingly well, and then the interviewer asks keenly, clearly expecting a well thought-out answer, “So do you have any questions you’d like to ask?” And to be honest, not having even one question prepared to show that you have a genuine interest in the job role you are applying for could be the difference between you, or another candidate being hired.
