Easy steps that you can take that will increase your chances of success at interviews.

The keys to a successful interview are preparation and practice.

Apart from the general questions like 
                      - Tell me about yourself , your key experiences and accomplishments, your strengths and weaknesses , reason for leaving your current job, What do you value in a supervisor, describe your management style, your understanding of the issues and trends in your specialty and in the overall industry , why are you qualified for this position, Give an example of a situation where you demonstrated leadership , Give an example of how you worked on a team.

there are a few additional tips which candidates need to prepare well.

• Focus on presenting a positive, enthusiastic tone.

• If you are asked to describe a weakness, mention lessons learned, and steer away from negative descriptions.

• Think about three or four key points that you want to make about your personal characteristics, skills you have learned, and relevant experiences that demonstrate that you could perform the Job well.

• Find specific, rather than general, examples from your experience that illustrate important points about yourself.

• When answering questions, focus on experiences that demonstrate flexibility, adaptability, responsibility, progress, achievement, creativity, initiative, and leadership.

• If the employer signals the end of the interview and asks you for questions, and

you haven't discussed some key points, say: "There are a couple of points I

would like to mention."

After the interview, write a brief thank you letter. 
Express your appreciation for the opportunity to interview and learn about the organization, re-confirm your interest, and re-emphasize how your background and skills might be of interest to the organization
