As a rule, candidates who take a more proactive role in their interviews tend to get more callback interviews and job offers than candidates who take a passive approach to interviewing. Proactive candidates are often perceived as more engaged, more thoughtful and more enthusiastic about the position. Additionally, it's often easier for interviewers to envision working alongside someone who takes a proactive role in interviews simply because the interviewer gets to know more about an engaged and proactive interviewee as compared to a passive candidate.
