1. BE LIKEABLE

Making a great first impression and establishing a real connection is everything.

2. NEVER START THE INTERVIEW BY SAYING YOU WANT THE JOB

Why? Because you don't know yet! False commitment is, well, false.

3. ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT REALLY MATTERS TO YOU

Interviewers respond positively to people as eager as they are to find the right fit.

4. SET A HOOK

Hooks make you memorable and create an anchor for interviewers to remember you by.
