1. BEFORE ATTENDING THE INTERVIEW Research the company. Focus on your strengths and weaknesses. If you have work experience, use your CV as evidence of your abilities. If it's your first job interview, demonstrate a willingness to challenge yourself and gain new experiences. Prepare to answer questions about hypothetical situations; spend some time on these aspects.
  2. YOUR OBJECTIVES IN THE INTERVIEW Show genuine interest in the offered position. Present yourself and your professionalism. Highlight your strengths that are most relevant to the position. Spark the interviewer's interest to seriously consider your application.
  3. BEHAVIORAL TIPS Maintain a positive attitude and avoid being argumentative. Never lie, ever. A period of unemployment or personal/family difficulties can be explained (without justification) in a mature manner. Provide concise answers, but avoid responding with just a simple yes or no. If you need a moment before answering, don't worry; this shows that you're not just repeating memorized phrases. Use a clear tone of voice when responding. Don't be afraid to admit not knowing something, but try to minimize such instances. Limit questions during the interview. At the end of the interview, ask direct questions. Before leaving, thank the interviewer for their time.
  4. ABOUT POSTURE Sit in a relaxed manner, both feet on the floor, slightly leaning towards the interviewer. Avoid playing with hair or hands. Don't keep hands in pockets. Don't put defensive barriers between you and the interviewer (e.g., don't keep bags on your knees, don't cross your arms, don't cross your legs). If there are multiple interviewers, look at the person speaking each time. Also, while speaking, it's good to shift your gaze among the attendees. Nod or shake your head to show you're attentively following the conversation.
  5. IS IT APPROPRIATE TO ASK THE INTERVIEWER QUESTIONS DURING THE INTERVIEW? There's always an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the interview. Remember that the interview is a two-way process. Generally, it's not advisable to ask about salary, benefits, or similar topics. However, it's preferable to always formulate a few questions. Some sample questions: What are the main goals and responsibilities of this position? How does the company expect these goals to be achieved? What resources does the company provide, and what needs to be obtained externally to achieve the goals?

Good luck
