How do you make someone want to hire you? Simple: Put yourself in the shoes of the interviewer and focus on his or her needs and you'll become an irresistible applicant.

There are some instruction to sell yourself in order to convince your interviewer :

 Be confident and believe in yoursel

"For someone to believe in you, you must first believe in yourself," Riccoboni and Callaghan write.Most people show their low self-esteem through speaking and body language and fail to gain the respect of others. The authors suggest choosing a "target" for how you want life to be and working toward it. The more you put yourself out there, the more confident you will be.

 Use the right body language

Ninety percent of all communication is non-verbal, the authors say. Don't look down or cross your arms: these are seen as signs you aren't confident. Make an effort to smile, make eye contact and appear calm throughout your meeting.

 Be prepared

Go into the meeting with knowledge about the company, people and culture. Showing that you care enough to be knowledgeable will make people trust you,

Consider ahead of time any questions you might be asked and have answers for them.

 Create a value proposition

Don't focus on talking about how great you are, because people don't care. Instead make your value proposition about the company and ways you could help improve it.

 Build rapport

To "appeal to the irrational," it is necessary to make potential business partners feel like your friend. Talk to them about their hobbies and interests so they will look forward to seeing you again.

 Dress for business

Even if you don't have a lot of experience, you can still create the impression of success. Wear nice clothes and make sure you are well-groomed.

 Make sure your resume is perfect

Even if you ace introductions, a bad resume will leave a lasting impression. Make sure yours is perfect and personalized with examples of why your experience makes you an ideal person to do business with.

 Study the description of the job for which you have applied.

Be clear on what is expected and if you have the background and skills to do it.

 Be Positive and Enthusiastic

Make the interviewer feel good about hiring you. Be enthusiastic, responsive, truthful and friendly.
