Is there anything you wish you could go back and do differently, or fix? MF: The first dress of Philippe in season one. (Pictured below.) GFY: How difficult is it to clear your mind of a project like this, or ANY project, in order to tackle the next one? And of course, how long a vacation do you need? MF: It depends on the project, and its not only of our choice, sometimes projects you cannot refuse come too soon. Of course, it takes time to find again the energy and the fervor to start a new project. GFY: Do you mind telling us how you originally became a costume designer? MF: As with many things in life, it came from encounters. I followed the art section, and was particularly drawn to textiles, but didnt know it would be my professional life. I gave a hand to the costume designer of Un ete meurtrier in 1982 and discovered at this occasion the profession and its attraction for me.

If the manager, during the conversation, starts making plans as to how you would be handling the work, making improvements, changes, etc., it indicates that he already sees you working on the position you have applied for. These can be tricky and tough, but if rightly handled, they can launch a new career option for you. Ask if you can take a seat, if you haven’t already been told to do so. Avoid grammatical errors and casual language. Increase your “self-knowledge” as it will help you answer many interview questions effectively. A study conducted in 2011, by CareerBuilder, an on-line job portal, showed that 31% of employers ranked ‘having a visible tattoo’ as the top personal attributes that would deter them from promoting an employee. careerBut this doesn’t mean you should criticize your previous employer. Yet, the interviewee finds it difficult to answer! If along with this, the hiring manager has discussed your salary expectations, it means that the manager sees you as one of the possible candidates who would be joining his organization. Thumbs-up is acknowledged as ‘well done’ and ‘very good’ while crossing fingers is a symbol of hope and anticipation.
