No one wants to work with a gloomy and impersonal slob who hates their occupation. Maintain professionality, send positive emails, sending polite emails to thank your prospective employers for the opportunity to interview, etc. Even if you don’t particularly love the job you are applying to, act like it.
People who love their jobs usually work harder, so this is an imperative quality to display during an interview and on your application. This may be where other applicants are lacking, so that is your time to shine.
