The Sales Pitch
in an interview is to sell yourself to the employer. You must convince
him/her that you have the strengths and necessary skills to do the
Strengths are things that you are able to do well; use these as your selling tools.
The more strengths you have that relate to the position you're applying for and
are able to prove, the more attractive a candidate you will appear to be.
Be a Good
Even if you have researched the position that you are interviewing
for, you might not know all there is to know about the job opportunity.
Learn to listen to the interviewer. It is likely they will give
you a lot of information about the company that you didn't know
when you walked through the door.
During the interview process ask the interviewer questions about
the company or organization, the training process, the qualities
the company looks for in an employee etc. It's another way to find
out if you are a good fit for the company.

traits needed to be successful on the job if hired. Instead of asking
you how you WOULD behave in a particular situation, the interviewer
will ask you to describe how you DID behave. You will have to provide

to accomplish a task or project?
- How To
Prepare For A Behavioural Interview
