Always maintain eye contact to interviewer throughout the interview.
Body language always sits up straight and do not cross you arms.
Ask to make notes throughout your interview, this demonstrates your level of interest, helps you retain information and helps to review your interview in preparation for a second should you be called back.
Talk clearly and slowly, so that the interviewer can understand your answers.
Listen to your interviewers questions, don’t interrupt or talk over them.
Be prepared to talk about the company and the position you’re interviewing for and be prepared to talk about what’s going on in the industry.
Open up and be thorough and give examples. However keep your answers on track and to-the-point, especially when you’re relating experiences to core competencies. Time is almost always a factor in an interview.
Ask insightful questions. If you have a question but the conversation moves to another topic, try to address it at the end of the interview.
Know your strengths and weaknesses. Especially weaknesses, we all have them!
Show you’ve done your research – mention the facts you’ve discovered.
If you still have some questions, be ready to ask them at the end of the interview.
