With the global economic downturn, job interview is becoming increasingly competitive. Prospective candidates are now coming out of their misconception that a job interview guaranteed them the job itself. There is fierce competition in the professional world and every candidate is hell bent on proving his/her worth at the few job interviews coming their way. In their bid to do so, some become over confident, while others lose out midway by becoming nervous. It should be remembered that a call for a job interview only suggests that the prospective employer would like to test you verbally as you have satisfied the required job profile.
