Are you excited at the prospect of getting a new job and are thrilled that you were called in for an interview?  Well, then show it when you are being interviewed!  Bring an energy and attitude to the interview that will make the company take notice.  The process of interviewing is usual a long and boring one for those on the other side of the table.  Do your part to make it easier for them to choose you as the best candidate.

Just think of all the people before and after you that are also going to be interviewed for
the same position.  If all other things were equal – qualifications and the answers to the
interview questions – what is going to set you apart from the rest?  You can be
enthusiastic and smile when answering (when appropriate) and still maintain an aura of
professionalism.  You want to exude charisma and keep the interviewer’s attention.  They
have heard a lot of the answers already, but you can get the message across with more
than words.

Someone who is excited to get a job and lets that excitement be known is going to have a
better chance than someone who talks in a monotone and with little to no emotion.  Don’t
be afraid to smile and use phrases as “that’s great” or “wonderful” when you are told
about the company.  Be the type of person that the company wants to represent them and
you will increase the chances of a job offer.  

A few words of caution: don’t go overboard.  Be genuine in your enthusiasm and be
yourself.  Sincerity is key or your enthusiasm could work against you instead of for you.  
If you are naturally bubbly by nature, tone it down a bit for the interview so you do not
overwhelm your hosts.
