Based on my experience with my job search clients, the same principle applies to interviewees." - Lewis Lin
"Subtly compliment your interviewer, on the questions he or she asks, on some aspect of their personality. Try to find something that will bond you, such as commenting on pictures of his or her family or sports themes or anything else they may have in the interview area." - Susan S.
Exude confidence to trump content
"During the interview don't stress over your answers, rather focus on confident feelings and project those. Studies at Harvard business school show that these are more important factors than the content of your replies." - John S.
Pause before answering
"When you take some time to answer, instead of rushing to it, it communicates to people that you know your own value. The vibe is that of someone who knows that what they have to say is worth the extra wait. People with authority/high status do this quite a bit, if you'll notice. Just to be clear, the point is not that you're trying to get your interviewer to acknowledge you as some ur-alpha dog - rather, the idea is to give them the impression that you are in the habit of doing this, because you respect your own opinion and time." - Tim C.
