What to do during a job interview

Arrive at the interview venue with plenty of time to spare, go into the offices ten minutes before the interview is scheduled to start.

A good firm handshake to show confidence (but don't hurt them).

Be confident in all you say - even if you're not feeling confident at the time.

Try not to lie - unless you're confident you won't get caught. If you do get caught then it is extremely unlikely that you'll be able to recover from that point and the rest of the interview will be a waste of time.

Make sure the interviewer doesn't talk over you. Be respectful but make sure that you get across all the points you want to make.

Try to turn the interview into a two way conversation, intersperse the interview with you own questions. This will make you seem interested and will create a more relaxed atmosphere.

Don't be negative about your current position. Try to seem like a positive person who is looking for a new challenge. Being positive may be difficult but employers view negative job interview answers poorly. They'll consider you a negative person with a negative attitude which will rub off on other members of staff. And let's face it - staying positive will help repel both bitterness and desperation.
