It’s true that some companies are being pickier these days and asking candidates to prove themselves time and time again. Others have been picky from day one. The goal is for you to demonstrate your friendliness and flexibility at all times and NEVER act as if you are irritated with or impatient about their decisions because that will take you out of the running faster than you can imagine. Instead, keep smiling and keep the stories you share during your interviews consistent. Most of all, enjoy the journey.
