√ Dressing appropriately for the interview on the side of being conservative helps to show you take the interview seriously.
√ Reaching 10 minutes prior to the start time helps. For that know the exact time and location of your interview; know how long it takes to get there, and then find a rest room to freshen up, etc.
√ Be prepared to correctly gather and understand your interviewer’s name and the correct pronunciation.
√ Instead of looking here and there or down, it is a good idea to maintain good eye contact with all the interviewers during the interview.
√ Avoid fidgeting and slouching; sit firmly in your seat.
√ Ask for clarification if you don’t understand a question.
√ Be specific and to the point while answering a question and be confident in your response.
√ Be sincere with your interest in the job opportunity and the company.
√ Just in the manner you greeted, confidently offer a firm handshake and make eye contact when the interviewer concludes the interview.
√ After the interview, make notes right away so you don’t forget critical details.
x Don’t make excuses for your decisions and your actions.
x Don’t badmouth about your previous employers or bosses.

x Don’t act too desperate as if you would take any job.
