1. Cast the word "interview" out of your vocabulary.
When you let an employer interview you, you put yourself in a weak position. Instead, have a working meeting and engage the employer on an equal footing, where the goal is to work together.

Roll up your sleeves. Ask the employer to put a live problem he's facing on the table. Better yet, do your research in advance, and know what that problem is. Demonstrate how you would tackle and solve it. Engage the employer in your demonstration.

This is not an interview. This is your first day on the job. If you don't deliver clear value, you'll be fired. Demonstrate your ability to do the work profitably and you'll be back. Cast the word "interview" out of your vocabulary. Tell the employer you're coming to do the job instead.
