Sample text

I still did an interview, but as long as I didn’t completely blow it, I was pretty much a shoe-in for getting an offer (and a much higher one than I would have gotten if I had not gone about applying for the job in the way I did). Thinking outside of the box and building rapport 25 Thinking outside of the box and building rapport The key to “hacking” the interview is to start thinking about a strategy for the interview before the interview starts. Sure, it’s possible to be absolutely charming during an interview and sweep your interviewer off their feet.

The truth of the matter is that even though we like to pride ourselves on our intellectual prowess, we’re all very emotional creatures. We’re like little babies who are walking around wearing suits and ties and pretending to be all grown up. A slight or injury is just as likely to cause us to cry or throw a tantrum, but we’ve learned to control and hide those emotions out of sight. For this reason, it’s imperative to avoid arguments at all costs. Logic and pure reason do little to convince a screaming toddler that it indeed makes sense for him to go to sleep so that he’ll be well rested for the day ahead, and it will do just about as much good in convincing a slighted coworker that your way of doing things is best.

There are many ways to go about doing this, most of which can be done before the interview even starts. How I got my last job For the job I held before going out on my own, I determined ahead of time that I wanted to work for this particular company because they seemed like a very good company and they allowed their developers to work from home. I spent some time researching the company and found that some of the developers for that company maintained blogs. I started following all of the blogs of the developers who worked for that company and began putting thoughtful and relevant comments on many of their blog posts.
