1.  Preparation and confidence
Preparation and confidence are very important tips. Good preparation always creates confidence. So the important thing to an interview is to be well prepared. In this you have to consider two things:
• You must prepare yourself practically for   the interview.
• You have to gather information which is   useful during the interview.
2.  Checklist
While going to interview you must consider the following things:
1. You have to confirm about the time, date     and location of the interview and name of     interviewee where appropriate.
2. You have to plan to get there no earlier     than half an hour before the
    interview time.
3. You must ready with your dress which

cafe of shop. And if you are going to be late, then best option is call them.
4.  Be Prepared!
Preparation means not only preparation of your syllabus etc. but also look at the company's website and learn something about the company before you attend your interview.
5.  Write down and practice possible      questions!
If you collect the job interview sample questions and practice for it then it will make easy to remember when you get to the interview. Use the third person when talking about the job. Avoid sounding as though you assume the job is yours. It is fine to ask about the package on offer and accommodation - living in and living out
are particularly relevant. Do not forget to find out if the company will guarantee a resort or chalet - many will only allocate
you a country. You could also try a fewer more testing questions such as how they differentiate themselves from their competitors or what they think the toughest/hardest part of the job is.
6.  You never get a second chance to      make a first impression!
First keep in mind that you never the second chance to make a first impression so be careful.
Some points are here to remember:
• Smile is one of the thing which may   matter in your impression. Good smile   always please people.
• Dressing also an important thing. You   should be in professional dress. And   must be looking formal.
• Do not forget for firm handshake.
• Eye contact without glaring is showing
  your confidence.
7.  Do not talk too much!
Always remember that communication is two-way things so give them a chance. Also don't interrupt to interviewer when he/she is talking. Give him/her full chance to talk. One common mistake candidates make when interviewing is talking too much. It is important to listen to the question asked and answer that question. Keep your answers to two to three minutes at the most. When you limit your time, you tend to stay more focused. It is very easy to stray off the subject and ramble about things irrelevant to the job if your answer
is too long.
8.  Be enthusiastic and positive!
During interview always enthusiastic. Do not say bad points for the previous em ployers. Focus on positive achievements and views. So always keep a spare photo and resume with you while going to interview.
9.  Check in During Interviews
Your initial interview answers should be brief. But some of your best stories may take time to detail, then after two minutes ask for permission to go on. You may say something like, "Now I have described about my project, would you like to hear about my role in detail?"
10. Answer Briefly
The best interviews have a give and take atmosphere. To do this, you need to ask questions and try to draw out your interviewer rather than talking about yourself nonstop. When it comes to talking during an inter view, sometimes less is more. A general rule is you should speak one-third of the time and definitely no more than half of the time. When it is your turn to speak, do not hesitate to talk about yourself.
11. First Comes the Phone
Now a days telephone screening is becoming very common. So you need to be prepare for the phone to ring at any time. These screenings may be for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your answers and fit for the job. it is helpful if you have thought about questions likely to be asked during the screening and prepared your answers.
12. Take a spare photo and CV
      with you!
It may happen that the interviewer wants your resume and photo. Your interviewer won't be expecting it so you will impress them. It also helps them remember you after the interview.
