34 Many studies have shown that interviewing does not provide the company with the best candidate for the job. Does that mean that interviewing is bad? No, its more that most interviewers are not that good. Very often, youll be interviewed by a recruiter who doesnt know that much about the job, a human resource professional that knows about the company but not about your specialty, or by a hiring manager who knows their area but hasnt been trained in interviewing techniques. Plus, interviewing often ends up being subjective and coming down to what kind of connection you have with the interviewer. That being said, there are several things you can do to increase your chances of a successful outcome in your interviews.

41 In most companies hiring managers make decisions about how to allocate their budgets. Generally HR representatives are messengers who report your past salary, salary requirements etc to the hiring manager. In some organizations the HR manager negotiates on behalf of the hiring manager. Find out that makes the final decision about salary and perks and, if possible, deal directly with that person.
42 Why do recruiters ask for your salary?
43 Why Should I Hire You?
44 Research the industry what is going on that will help you understand the larger environment in which the company operates? What is the competition doing?
45 What exactly do you want to know Does it understand more about a job or career Do you want to learn how to write a Blog, a book or start a business$ Create a list of questions that you will ask the person you are meeting with so that you do not forget anything. This will also help him understand what information is most useful for you so that the conversation doesnt wander during your meeting. Prepare and write down your questions ahead of time but do not bombard him with too many. It is okay to take notes during the meeting.
