Listen, Listen, Listen
Review the company literature prior to interviewing – make sure you are fully prepared.
Don’t say negative things about your present employer during the interview. It’s O.K. to think they are “heading in the wrong direction” or “aren’t providing new technical challenges.”
Ask questions that relate to the business of the company. Examples: market share, profit margin, add-on business, how is the documentation and support?
Show passion and interest in your recent jobs and accomplishments.
Before the discussion ends, ask if you should clarify any points in the discussion.
Be able to elaborate on the information in your resume and explain what your role was.
Be prepared to speak in-depth about your accomplishments, strengths and weakness.
Practice before you go in…Strategize about the flow of the interview.
