Daily Interview Tip

Whatever the reason for rejection from one company there is a way it can be improved and transformed as a reason for acceptance at another. 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. Don't linger after your interview. Say thank you, restate your interest in working with them, and leave. Acknowledge reception on the way out.
