Hey, Who's Running This Interview, Anyway?

One of the most important things to note in Kenny's reply is that he approached the interview knowing what he wanted to accomplish during it. So many candidates go into the interview like cadavers being wheeled in for a med school anatomy class - they just sit there, letting the interviewer slice them apart. They spend far more time on wardrobe selection than answer preparation. Kenny's answer should demonstrate how wrong-headed that approach can be. It is essential for you to develop an interview strategy so your strengths can shine through and your weaknesses never surface (or, if they do, do so in a context that makes them seem relatively minor and unimportant). This strategy should help you determine how you will answer almost any of the questions put to you during the screening interview or the interview with the hiring manager.
