If you’re going into an interview, show interest in the person conducting the interview.
People love talking about themselves! With the power of the internet, you can find out just about anything you want about anybody you want. If you know who is conducting the interview, find a common interest you share and bring it up. If you don’t know who will be interviewing you, improvise when you get into their office. Look for pictures or wall art that might clue you in. If you focus on learning about them you seem more interesting and dynamic.
