2>>> Focus on and avoid personal habits, such as biting nails, tapping of feet, and twitching. Avoid habits that can reflect negatively on your candidacy.

3>>> Utilize the interviewer's name, if possible. For example:"Good morning, Mr. Blake." Look Mr. Blake in the eyes when speaking to him, or listening to him as well.

7>>> Listen, relax, and provide targeted answers ... don't babble.
