  2. Your desire for the job is one of the important factors which will make you come into prominence.
  3. You have to prevent exaggerated, unrealistic expressions.
  4. Asking some questions about the company, the role of the position in the organization, expectations from the position, the targets of the company in the near future, before the interview can attract the attentions of the interviewers.
  5. The companies focus on your character type and the way how you manage the relations. Thus, it will be beneficial to talk about the previous projects in which you played roles and the processes that you improved.

 What should I do after the interview?
 
After the interview, forget all about this interview and search for new opportunities and try to keep all possibilities in hand. If the company wants to work with you, then they will call. Your insistent e-mails and telephone calls will have no effect on their choice. But in order to show your interest, you can send an e-mail or can call the company once.
