In order to get the job, you have to show up as enthusiastic, knowledgeable and "right" for the position. There are ways you can assure this. The tips below are just a few things to remember when you are in the interview setting.
Your job in the interview is to make the hiring manager like you well enough to want to hire you over all the other qualified candidates. Since you will be "liked" within the first five minutes of the interview, be very careful at that first impression. Are you dressed modestly and appropriately? Ladies, did you leave the cleavage-showing sweater at home and wear a pretty blouse that flatters you but is not too revealing? Is your skirt at an appropriate length? Gentlemen, did you show up in a jacket and tie? Are your shoes shined?
While you want to know about the company you are applying to, don't waste the interviewer's time by trying to demonstrate that you have studied the company. Let that come out more naturally as you answer the questions that the interviewer wants to ask.
Be very careful that you take your lead from the interviewer. You don't want to direct this interview, but you DO want to be responsive to the interviewer.
