  1. Bring copies of your resume.
    There is nothing that stalls an interview faster than when the manager says s/he forgot your resume, and you do not have an extra copy.
  2. Practice your handshake.
    Your only and immediate physical intimacy is with your handshake, so practice it on your family members. Good tip: if you are concerned that your palms may be sweaty, sprinkle a little baby powder in your pocket.
  3. Make eye contact and smile.
    Show that you are happy to be there and looking forward to the discussion. People instinctively react well to happy, smiling people.
  4. Energy level.
    Put some bounce in your step. Act like you are excited to be there, and are filled with ideas.
  5. Dress appropriately.
    Do not overdress. You can also call the receptionist and ask what the dress code is. Receptionists generally love to help.
  6. Be aware from the time you hit the lobby.
    Assume you are on camera at all times. Treat the receptionist well as some firms will ask them for their impression.
  7. Prepare answers to the common job interview questions.
    Standard questions are usually asked by most employers. Be prepared for those questions by relating your answers to this specific employer, based on your research.

Follow these tips and you will see dramatic improvements in your interviewing and overall job search.
