Interview Conversation or Interrogation?
As long as you perceive yourself as just another job applicant, you will always be subservient to your next potential employer. The traditional job interview scenario always puts the employer in a position of power. They ask the standard questions. E.g., "What is your greatest weakness?" "Why should I hire you?" "Where were you on the night of 12th (smile)?" In this scenario, it's nearly impossible to be recognized as the expert solution provider you are. Instead, you go through the motions, and most often, an offer is not extended.
