Congratulations you made the cut! But, the rules have just changed. The interviewer may have concerns about skill level. Listen. Listen and listen some more. Then you will be able to dispel concerns and present yourself as a well-balanced individual. Sometimes the interviewer is there to remove you as a candidate. Work on rapport with this individual instead of reiterating your key strengths. The questions are going to be more technical to determine the depth of knowledge. Be prepared!

What accomplishment was the most difficult to achieve?
