9 Powerful Interview Tips to Help You Win Every Job Opportunity
A few weeks ago, I shared that I had landed a new job in this post: Wow! I’m the Boss! In it, I wrote that I would share my best interview tips that have helped me in all my career moves.
Well, I did write a post with my interview tips to share, and I am flattered to have it published on Work Happy Now. Here’s how it starts:
Here’s an important point no one ever shares. You do not have to be the most qualified person applying for a job to get hired. You just have to be the person your interviewer likes for the job!Most managers hire for personality and passion, not your skill set.
You can always become better trained on the job. It comes with experience. But no manager wants to hire a person they don’t find likable. They’re looking for someone who will be pleasant to be around and will work well with their current team as a productive member.
In the past six years, I have tripled my income by moving up and moving on to better opportunities. I’ve used these practices to ace all my job interviews, including the latest one that landed me my present, new general manager’s position.
I am happy to share my tips with you that always get me the job.1) My best “secret” is: Pretend like your interviewer is your own real friend!
Pretend to yourself that the interviewer is a friend you’re meeting for a casual chat, like getting together over coffee or lunch. Please read the rest of this article by clicking Work Happy Now. I hope it proves to be helpful for you or someone you know.

My blog has been my baby for the past couple of years. I worked hard to help it grow, nourished it, and struggled to care for it when it suffered ills. I raised it from a new baby named Prayerful Mom till it turned into a more mature Happier Better Life. A blog takes an enormous amount of time and energy. After two years of stretching myself to stay on top of everything (for the most part!), I took a new job a few months ago, which requires even more responsibility and time and energy. I have to cut back
My teenage daughter has been a vegetarian for more than a year now. (She is preparing this recipe in the photo.) Her dedication has been extremely surprising, given that her favorite foods used to be bacon cheeseburgers and baby-back ribs! She simply decided to be a vegetarian, and that was that.Share this:[Read more…]
Six and a half years ago, after a failed marriage, my children and I were living in a low-income apartment. It was all I could afford with my tiny budget. After having been a stay-at-home mom for a few years, I had re-entered the business world from the bottom rung, barely earning minimum wage. Share this:[Read more…]
I’ve heard of families with teenagers who play board games together. I can imagine the family around the table, laughing, enjoying each other’s company and bonding together. Unfortunately, that’s not my family. There’s no way my 16-year-old son is going to spend his afternoon playing a board game with me and/or his sister. The older my kids get, the more difficult it becomes to find activities for us to enjoy together as a family. That’s the biggest reason why I love taking trips!Share this:
I actually got bullied at church. Well, after church. A couple of Sundays ago, my daughter and I were staying late after the service, visiting with the music director. My daughter was telling the director that her dad was going to take her to a nearby shooting range for target practice later. My kids are teenagers, and they really enjoy the shooting range. They shoot skeet and targets with zombies on them. (I thought the kids and their dad would look fabulous with Duck Dynasty beards photo edited on them, but I resisted the urge.)
