• Relevant experience - When asked whether you've had direct related experience, say “yes” if you have and state your achievements proving it. If not, don’t just say “no.” Instead, comment that rarely are two jobs identical in every way, and that you are very interested in the job and give examples of how you either similar related experiences or have skills & abilities that can help you backed up with evidence. You should always state that you willing & want to learn/develop new skills too.
• Team relationships - When discussing projects on which you worked on, the interviewer may be listening to see whether you go beyond taking fair credit for your accomplishments. This means do you hog all the credit or acknowledge the roles & efforts your team played. You want to impress however, only accept the credit of aspects you played and how you helped & worked with the team.
• Departure reasons - Griping in detail about why you want to leave your present job or left last job reveals your values and raising suspicions that you would merely replay your frustrations in the job. Do you want to show the employer that you could be a potential trouble maker or that you be happy & satisfied in the job? Think about how you’ll come across before you answer!
Tip: Record your answers to potential job interview questions. The next day, put yourself on the other side of the desk: Listen for what interviewers may be hearing. Do you sound like a winner?
