In your next interview, focus the conversation on the needs of the company, not just your career needs.

Yes, we want to be fulfilled in our next job, but show your potential employer that their organizational goals are at the forefront of your mind.

Talking only about your needs can send a message that you are self-consumed and will be challenging to work with. Strive to show yourself as a team player.

“When we focus on ourselves, our world contracts as our problems and preoccupations loom large. But when we focus on others, our world expands. Our own problems drift to the periphery of the mind and so seem smaller, and we increase our capacity for connection – or compassionate action.” – Daniel Goleman, Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships
