Job Interview Tips
What To Do During the Interview

If you want some great job interview tips, take a look at the ideas presented below. The list provides some of the most basic tenets of interview etiquette, but this first tip is one that might just set you apart from your competition.

The First Tip

Studies have shown that sales people who use their prospects' names generate a 239% increase in sales over those who do not do so.

The simple act of using a person's name can have a huge impact on your success in landing a job! Why? People love to hear their own names.

During your next job interview, focus on remembering the names of the interviewers. Find a reason to say their name at least three times during the interview. When concluding the job interview, thank them by name at the end of the interview to make a lasting impression.

But don't stop there. Make it a point to remember and use the names of the other people you meet -- the receptionist, the HR person, anyone you speak to during your visit. They'll remember YOU and maybe nudge the boss in your direction when it's time to make the hiring decision!

Now, just for fun, here are a few interview tips that might give you a bit of a chuckle. Hey, you have to relieve the job search stress somehow, right?
