The interviewer may think you are over-qualified and want this job only until something better comes along. Stress that no job is ever boring because you always learn new skills. Mention how you would benefit by working for the company and vice versa. During your interview, take opportunities to demonstrate your accomplishments. Be ready to summarize accomplishments from your work, leisure and volunteer activities, and include the results you achieved. Ask intelligent questions at the interview to clarify your responsibilities and to show that you're someone who wants to make an impact.
