I've always done really well in interviews...

1. Look them in the eyes.
2. Smile alot
3. Be confident
4. Act like you know what you are talking about and how your background ties in. For example if you are going in for a job in computers and you are a comm major like me! Then be like well I have learned how to deal with a variety of people and find out what they mean which directly deals with computers.. or something.

5. Make it clear you want the job
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I think it's some kind of tea. :*)

Just be confident, and be yourself. Stay cool and pay attention. You'll do great.

Good luck.

As a guy who has had to interview a lot of people, let me tell you that interviewers hate it as much as you. So try to make it fun or interesting for the interviewer and they will like you and remember you.

Agreed, in my days as a manager, I had to interview a couple of times a week. Make it interesting, and depending on how many people are interviewing for the job, make an impression and make sure they know you WANT the job. and of course don't sweat it.

Good Luck! ;-D

The tips already given are good. ;-D Something else though, be yourself. Don't put on a big fake facade. Be genuine. ;-D
