Make sure your interview attire is neat, tidy and appropriate for the type of firm you are interviewing with. Bring a nice portfolio with copies of your resume. Include a pen and paper for note taking.
How to Dress
The first impression you make on a potential employer is the most important one. The first judgment an interviewer makes is going to be based on how you look and what you are wearing. Thatâ€™s why itâ€™s always important to dress professionally for a job interview, even if the work environment is casual.
You’ll want that first impression to be not just a good one, but, a great one. The candidate dressed in a suit and tie is going to make a much better impression than the candidate dressed in scruffy jeans and a T-Shirt.
Be On Time
Be on time for the interview. On time means five to ten minutes early. If need be, take some time to drive to the office ahead of time so you know exactly where you are going and how long it will take to get there.
During the job interview try to relax and stay as calm as possible. Take a moment to regroup. Maintain eye contact with the interviewer. Listen to the entire question before you answer and pay attention – You will be embarrassed if you forget the Question!
Show What You Know
Researching the company before your interview is a good way to know where you would fit into it . It lets the employer know that you really want to be part of the company too

You want to describe your weaknesses as strengths. For example, saying that you are overenthusiastic about performing at your best.
Since many interviewers ask you whatâ€™s your biggest fault might be, you should pick a fault that is actually a good thing. Try saying â€śI donâ€™t take on a projects that I canâ€™t give 110% on.
Let your interviewer bring up the topic of salary first.
Market your skills and related experience in the field that you are applying for. Be sure to do it in a way that is positive and not cocky.
Donâ€™t volunteer your personal opinions to your interviewer about any subjects unless you are asked.
Try to establish a good rapport or relationship with your interviewer. Be casual but professional, and most importantly BE YOURSELF!
