    The first impression is the last impression. The first thing any interviewer notices about you is the way you look. Always wear formals for an interview and make sure it is ironed well. For females, they need to wear minimum makeup and accessories. While men need to clean shave or if they have a beard it should be trimmed well.

  • Maintain a good posture

    Body language does more talking than your mouth. So make sure you maintain a proper posture and carry a good body language. Avoid tapping your hands and feet as that can display nervousness and hyper activeness. If your interviewer gives you firm handshake, make sure you reciprocate. Handshakes are said to speak volumes about a person.
