The majority of hiring managers agree that a candidate’s apparent lack of interest in the job is the most common error they see in interviews. There’s a very easy fix to this. To prove to your interviewer you truly want the job, you need to act like it. Do research ahead of time on the company and the role. Prepare to ask lots of questions and share your ideas to show you mean business. When it comes time for the interview, show your excitement throughout the entire conversation. Give it your all.

The job interview is arguably the most important step in your job search. Once you’ve gotten past the applicant tracking system, it’s your time to truly shine. It’s your opportunity to say, “I am the best candidate for this job and here’s why.”

Plenty of candidates make costly mistakes during their job interviews and forfeit jobs for which they’re perfectly qualified.
