Be prepared to ask your own questions - about position itself, company and opportunities for your own growth. This allows you to quickly assess viability of your pursuing position further. An interviewer may like you, especially because of your questions, and want you to continue through subsequent interview stages; however, you may decide job is not for you.
Come to interview dressed appropriately, and on time. Your handshake needs to be firm but not gripping. Eye contact must be maintained throughout interview. Sit upright in your chair and try not to shift your posture too much. Remember, you’re there to sell yourself; before interview is over, make sure you ask for offer. Fully prepared, you will come away a success.
