This chapter discusses rules which help achieve deftness in being Job‐Interview Smart. These rules include: being well prepared by collecting relevant information; putting a positive spin on our qualifications; preparing targeted elevator pitches/speeches; and sizing up and resonating with the interviewer. Winning interviewers' confidence in us by exhibiting confidence and avoiding gaffes by avoiding overconfidence are the other rules discussed. The chapter provides examples of failures through a few stories, which will prevent individuals from making similar mistakes in their own job interviews. The chapter concludes with a successful interview story.
