Know that it’s not about you. That’s it. That is the one single most important thing you can do to improve your job interview results. Yet so few understand that. Most of you think people interviewing you for jobs care about you and your strengths, motivations and fit. They don’t. They care about what you can do for them. If you keep this in mind and think, speak, and act in ways that can solve your interviewer’s problems, your chances of getting hired for the right job go up exponentially.
Don’t be the one with the general strengths, motivation and fit to do the job. Be the one with the most specifically applicable strengths, motivation, and fit to solve the most important problems the interviewer faces.
