performance plays a big role. Here are some easily forgettable points.
|90% interviewing questions raised based on your own resume. |
|eye-to-eye contact, smiling all the way. don't miss anyone in the corner.
|asking easier and relevant questions back to the interviewers
|be honest to answer technical questions, you are not expert to know
|don't let your boss feel you might be a threat to take his position. |
|don't be critical, focus on what you can do. |

and work schedule that this job requires." Or if he/she asks, "Are you
planning a family in the future?" You might say, "Right now I am focused on my
career and as a family is always an option, it is not a priority right now."
