TRY SITTING IN MY SHOES

I have found that sometimes we all get tunnel vision.  We can't see the big picture.   A good example is the discussion of what should I do with
the chair during my interview.  I've known people who spent as much time worrying about arranging the furniture as they did on the best way to tell the board about themselves.

One great technique is to sit on the other side of the table.  Do some mock interviews with other people testing and you are the rater.  You can
use some of the questions from the www.EatStress.com web site, or make up your own.

Pay attention not only to what they say, but how they say it.  Look at their body language.  Hear how inflection and enthusiasm change a raters
impression of a candidate. You could probably learn as much from people messing up, as if they do a good job.

I am not the biggest fan of going before the people you're competing with
and giving them your "A" list stuff.  But you will sure start to see some
stuff others are doing, both right and wrong, that you see in yourself.
