Control your interviews - Most people go into a job interview in a passive, controlled state. They answer some questions, take a few tests perhaps and fill in a few forms. Virtually everything is underrepparttar control ofrepparttar 101831 job seeker.

I've found a more assertive approach can be more fruitful, and certainly it feels more fulfilling. Go intorepparttar 101832 interview with a pad of paper and writing materials. Be surerepparttar 101833 pad has a list of questions for your potential employer, as well as some notes about their company. When you meetrepparttar 101834 employer, introduce yourself assertively. Listen well, but also ask lots of questions and, most importantly, show off your knowledge ofrepparttar 101835 company, position and if possible, your interviewer. Showrepparttar 101836 person you have done your homework.

Search forrepparttar 101837 problems - Find out what kind of problems your potential employer is attempting to solve. Ideally, you should try and do some of this beforerepparttar 101838 interview (with good research) if you can. However, it's perfectly acceptable to askrepparttar 101839 interviewer aboutrepparttar 101840 position and aboutrepparttar 101841 situation. Once you find out what they are attempting to solve by hiring you, then you can inform them how you can help them solve those problems.

Build a rapport - Be friendly and listen. Listen well. Keep your ears peeled for anything which you and your interviewer have in common. For example, if you determine that he likes opera and you just saw "Cats", then you might get into a discussion about it. Back off fast if you find it's not a good subject - otherwise, be animated and happy about it. Why are you doing this? Because a huge part ofrepparttar 101842 interview process isrepparttar 101843 interviewer is determining if you are someone he or she wants to work with. By having common likes (or dislikes) you make yourself more friendly to them.

While waiting inrepparttar 101851 lobby, you talk torepparttar 101852 receptionist and find outrepparttar 101853 person doing your interview likes movies, especially science fiction movies.

Now asrepparttar 101856 interviewer explains whatrepparttar 101857 job is about and asksrepparttar 101858 usual questions, you can mention that you are very good at stepping into chaotic situations and organizing them.
