What you wear often allows your interviewers to form their first impressions of you. Hence, it is important to dress according to the company you are applying for. In fact, it is always better to dress up than dress down.
2. How to act
Interviews are meant to test how you will react to challenges. It is crucial that you never lose your cool and stay calm when faced with a difficult or tricky question. It is also completely acceptable to ask for some time to think about your answer rather than rushing and saying something wrong.
3. Body language
Your body language is often a reflection of your character. In order to impress your interviewer, you should always present a confident body language.
4. What to ask
You should never leave an interview without asking anything about the company as it shows that you are not prepared and/or not interested in the company. Always do adequate research about the company before your interview so that you can go well-prepared with questions to ask your interviewers.
5. How to end off
How you end your interview is just as important as how you start it. To avoid coming off rude, you should always thank your interviewers and maintain your respectful disposition.
