In the group setting it is no longer just about making a good impression on the hiring manager, but also about setting yourself apart from the rest of the candidates. Here are 5 tips to help you stand out in your next group interview. Stay true to yourself. This one sounds simple enough, but take a seat next to "Know-it-all Alan" or "Chatty Cathy" & it will be tempting to try and keep up. Let your own unique personality shine through. You want a hiring manager to see exactly what you bring to the table and be able to determine if that makes you a good fit for the company. Be polite.
