What are important things to keep in mind during a job interview?

Some simple things will really help you make a huge impact in interview:

  • Dress and groom well . No stains on ties, no dirt on shoes
  • Moderate your odour and refinement :
    • Don’t use TOO much perfume/cologne
    • Don’t use TOO much hair gel
    • Don’t have a razor sharp haircut
  • Smile often, smile sincerely
  • Pause for a moment when asked a question - even if the answer is rehearsed - it makes the interviewer feel intelligent
  • Vary your tone of voice - highs, lows, fast and slows - it makes you dynamic
  • Look up to the sky before you say something positive; down to the floor before you say something negative/troubling
  • Have examples that relate to broad competency questions : re: Leadership, Teamwork, Communication, Went something wrong etc
  • Have data driven evidence - specifics are king

This should be a good place to start :slight_smile:
