Entrepreneur Network partner Business Rockstars digs into a few tips on how to really do great things in an interview.

In this video, Mike Arce, CEO and founder of Loud Rumor, explains that one of the main signifiers of a standout candidate is when she asks questions. A question about the company's mission and possible abilities to contribute to it are some great comments to make in order to stand out in a positive way. When candidates have no questions, Arce explains the effect is the candidate is just there for the job and not invested in the company.

For the ideal candidate, Arce considers someone who not only fits the core values of the company but is also honest and able to think on his feet. These traits combined with someone who can own up to her mistakes and a genuine enthusiasm for the company can help a candidate snap up a job -- possibly at Live Rumor.
