This is a critical and important section. Taking a full needs assessment, you have had the full interview and know you like what they are presenting and hope to take it to the next level, ask them for the job on the spot. This is a chance to overcome any objections on the spot. Ask “Are there any responsibilities with this position that you would be concerned about me being able to handle? No? Great.” “I’d Like to continue this and based off what I have seen, responsibilities, position and my skills this looks like a place where I can fit in. Do you feel like I am a match?”
Most of the time it will be a decision by committee, so it is key to make everyone you meet feel important.

Make sure you buddy up with some folks.
Keep cursing to yourself. We are all adults but if it is questionable leave it out.
Focus on not saying things you can’t take back. “These are the skill sets I have, tell me how you find them to be successful? I am a quick learner and I’m confident that I can learn these skills.”
