Dress appropriately first of all.
Eye contact.
If you're a woman, sit with your legs pressed together or your ankles crossed and off to the side - but never sit cross-legged (this part applies to guys too).
Speak clearly.
Ask questions.

Turn your faults into a positive.

This all gets drilled into my head each time I even get close to getting an interview.

I'd say...

Guys: Dress neat and tidy. Don't look like a punk or an emo. You'll turn out looking like a shithead.

Girls: Go easy on the make-up... unless you're going for a job as a prostitute or a clown.

Shake his/her hand, don't let them shake yours. Show confidence.
Dress accordingly, like Ray said.
Eye contact.
Light smile.
Don't talk about your failures unless you really have to.

Default Re: Interview Techniques Thread

Bring fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies to the interview as a gift. No one can resist, you'll be right in.
Honesty.
Smiles and eye contact.

Default Re: Interview Techniques Thread

Have a sense of humor but don't be too silly to the point it is unprofessional though.
Go Online and look up 'common questions job interviewers ask' and practice your lines before hand.
Always show up at least 20 minutes before an interview.

Be confident, act as if you own that job, that job is all yours and pronounce your words perfectly.
