See things from their perspective.

Let’s be honest, the key to landing your dream job isn’t about you, it’s about how you fit and can help the hiring company. The people interviewing you are likely tasked with finding a person that will help the business deliver on key objectives. Put yourself in their position before coming in for your interview. What will they want to see from a candidate? What would set someone apart? If you can see how you’ll help the bottom line and achieve their goals, it will put you in a much better position to be the right fit.
