During group interviews, ask for each person’s business card and lay the cards out in front of you to help you remember everyone’s name.

Fired? Have a multi-year gap from being home? Lackluster company performance? Horrible boss? Whatever is challenging about your background, be thoroughly prepared to proactively discuss it in a diplomatic manner outlining what you learned from the situation. Do not hope the interviewer won’t ask you about it. They most certainly will. It is best to be ready!
When on a job interview, you’re not the only one being interviewed. You’re there to determine if you’d like to work at the organization. So come prepared to ask questions. Ask questions about the structure of the organization, what a typical day would be like, what will be expected of you to accomplish early on, what are the best qualities of the top performers in the organization, how will you be evaluated, etc… Learning the answers to these questions will help you decide if the company is a good fit for you. Plus, interviewers like candidates that ask smart questions.

College students or graduates should remember to assert a high or enhanced level of interest in the job at the end of an interview for an appealing position, prior to parting with the interviewer. This positive, last impression that you are a highly interested candidate can influence a recruiter to view your interview more favorably and make it more likely that you will be asked for a second interview or be issued a job offer. Everything else being roughly equal, the most motivated candidates for entry level jobs will often be the ones to get hired.

Become a “talking resume” and tell stories about your experiences as they relate to your abilities to do the job at hand. This is not the time to be modest. But always be relevant. This is not bragging. This is selling in a most sincere manner. It’s solutions selling! Showcase your potential contributions. Sometimes you’ll be talking about previous experience in the same type of job, but sometimes you’ll need to make connections or “translations” between one job and another. “I took care of the budget as purchasing agent; I’m sure I could do it for call center operations.”

If you don’t land the job, but know you were the #2 candidate, stay in contact with the company; many follow their “silver medalists” and recruit them later on.
