What are the differences between 1st interview and 2nd interview?
Went in for an interview for an IT position. Passed their background and drug screening, and got invited for 2nd interview. Obviously, I am in the small pool of applicants they narrowed down. The 1st interview was with the recruiting coordinator at HR, and seems like the 2nd interview will be with the people from IT dept that I'll be working with if I get the job. Now, if there's anything I need at least at this stage in my life, it's this job. Anyone can give me any helpful tips on how I should approach this 2nd interview to increase my chance of getting the job? Should I take any different approches than in the 1st interview? I need the job.
