  • good luck. I have learned on the interview a great trick. If its between two candidates the one that specifically states that they want the job is more likely to get it. At the end of the interview when they ask if you have any question tell them very specifically that you really want this job and you feel that this would be a great fit and ask them what concerns they have about you after the interview as to why you might not be the best fit. It is an amazing opportunity to answer objections, understand for the future and often seal the deal.

  • Good luck! I agree with the first poster about trying to engage the interviewers in a conversation. Don't just sit there and only answer questions that they ask you. You need to have questions for them too!
