The importance of listening and focus during an interview.
"Be Quiet and Focus
by Carole Martin
Monster Contributing Writer
One common mistake candidates make when interviewing is talking too much. It's important to listen to the question asked and answer that question. Keep your answers to two to three minutes at the most. When you limit your time, you tend to stay more focused. It is very easy to stray off the subject and ramble about things irrelevant to the job if your answer is too long. Watch the interviewer's eyes -- if they glaze over, you've lost them."

What employers are looking for.
"Remember....Employers are looking for people who are enthusiastic about
coming to work with them. Show them you are motivated and will be an asset
to their company. DON'T dwell on why you are leaving your current job. Be
positive, let them know that it’s their job that you want and their company you
want to be a part of."
