The goal of the job interview is to show the employer that you have the skills, background, and ability to do the job and that you can successfully fit into the organization and its culture. Not only that, you have to show that you are better than other candidates. Remember, the job interview is a communication process. It involves an exchange of information; it's a give and take.
