I have a second job interview this Friday. I really need tips and suggestions on how to ace the interview and get an offer Long story short, if I don't get this job I'm forced to take a severance package from my current job by the end of the month. I have solid experience for the position I'm interviewing for. That's not a problem. A reference thinks that because I'm a very introverted person that might be one reason why I don't get an offer. Some one else said to just be myself but "play to the audience... Good communicators 'flex' give the audience in front of them... that does not mean you should be disingenuous". I'm not quite sure that that means Any ideas? I can't be super hyper and chatty But just being myself doesn't seem to be working either. I answer questions honestly with detail and ask questions to the interviewers about the position, company, etc. At a previous interview with another company, I had a great interaction with one of the interviewers (the head of the group for the position) explaining what I currently do since he had no experience with it and was really interested in it. Still, I didn't get the position The position I'm interviewing for on Friday is at a small start up that isn't even open yet. At the first interview, the interviewer indicated that the company was planning to open by the end of June and most of the necessary staff would be in place by then. I heard that other companies in the area have laid off staff so there's a huge pool of candidates out there looking for jobs That would explain why my current job has had so many new people join recently, mostly contract staff. I need to really wow the interviewers (just 3 people) on Friday to get an offer over other candidates.
