When you are interviewing for a job, there is one thing you should never do: come across as desperate. Although it may be tempting to try to “sell” yourself to the interviewer, this can often backfire.
When you come across as desperate, you come across as needy and insecure. This is not the impression you want to make on a potential employer. Instead, you want to come across as confident and self-assured. The best way to do this is to focus on your accomplishments and talents, and not on how much you need the job.
In addition, when you come across as desperate, you are more likely to make concessions that you later regret. For example, you may be tempted to take a lower salary than you are worth, or to accept a job that is not a good fit for you.
So, if you want to make the best impression in your job interview, make sure to avoid coming across as desperate. This one mistake can cost you the job that you want.
