Turn off phone
Switch off your phone before the interview so that it doesn’t intervene between you and the interviewer.
Showing up late for the interview is not at all the ethical. So be sure you arrive early with few extra copies of resume.
Handshake is your first expression before the interviewer so it has to be strong and confident. Also, make an eye contact when you shake the interviewer’s hand.
Good posture and standing up instead of slouching gives the impression that you are confident. Don’t shake your legs or fidget your hands because it communicates that you are anxious or bored.
You may have an interview with multiple people. Each time someone new enters, you should stand up, introduce yourself, and shake their hand. When someone leaves the room, stand up, shake their hand and thank them for their time. This is polite and communicates that you are confident and poised.
Asking questions during an interview is crucial because it shows that you are genuinely interested in the role, the company, and how you can help it to succeed.
At the end of the interview thank them for their time to meet with you and for considering you for the position.
Follow Up (Appropriately)
You should follow up after an interview. It shows that you are interested and passionate about the opportunity but be patient. It is really stressful and frustrating not to hear back from a position right away but that doesn’t mean you will start following up twice or thrice a day.
