Be respectful when you go into your interview. Make sure you keep eye contact and a strong hand shake. Be honest when you answer questions and don't be too serious.

First and foremost is to show up on time. Dress neatly. And if your primary language is english, use good diction.

No matter what, don't make eye contact, it makes you seem intimidating. Wear LOTS of cologne or perfume.

Be yourself and be as honest aspossiblee. Don't lie on the resima just to impress them because what if there is another person who is better than you for real but you get job because you lied. That would not be cool.

Dress appropriately for the position you are interviewing for. If they all wear shirt and tie, for instance, do the same. Speak clearly. Relax. be calm and confident. To name a few. Good luck to you

for me, its was being very friendly, mature, responsible, and bright! The first thing they're looking for is an immature kid trying to get a job.just show them your no kid and they'll be too shocked and pleased to let you go! Hope that helps some!! GOOD LUCK
