There are plenty of you out there wondering why you didn’t get the job. Well, if you’re stupid or not qualified that would have an impact. For the rest of you here is one tip that could help. Don’t go into a job interview prepared to stick to the subject, the job! I’m not saying to go into a job interview and cry about your partner leaving you last night. However, studies have shown that peppering the professional with a little of the personal makes you a more likeable person and increases closeness. In other words, the interviewer might be able to relate to you because you not only know the facts of the job but you’re also human. Get in there and give it a try. Don’t be afraid to talk about yourself but keep it minimal and make it connect to something the interviewer says or something you see in the room, so it doesn’t sound like your brain just went sideways for no reason at all. Remember: two thirds professional, one third personal!
