In an interview, what's the most valuable thing that the interviewer will focus on to consider me a good candidate?
That's a great question. Besides the technical aspects of the interview, the projects you've delt with and all your expertise, it is important to show that you are motivated to know more about the company, that you've done your homework and you know what you are truly looking for in your next career step.

Make a list of "most valuable things" in your next career step, and show confidence and empathy at the same time towards your interviewer. You should also show flexibility. It's ok to have your own point of view, but it is also very important to show flexibility towards the other person's point of view.
